    Subjective: Naomi Campbell on Nick Knight

    Watch the latest instalment of our ongoing Subjective series, in which Nick Knight reflects on the history of fashion photography from the perspective of the models. This week he speaks to British supermodel Naomi Campbell about collaborating on ‘Untitled’, a Political Fashion film tackling the taboo subject of racism in the fashion industry.

    Campbell sat down with Knight to candidly discuss racism in casting (‘We are not a trend - I didn’t work 28 years for it to be a trend’), the powerful nature of the film - ‘I loved how you stood up for us, how you told the truth because many don’t’ - and her working relationship with Knight: ‘It’s not your normal 9 to 5 photoshoot - it’s always something different, it’s always something creative, it’s always something new and innovative that we’ve never done before’.

    Transformative: Val Garland on Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben

    Our Transformative series returns! This running series of exclusive interviews with stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers continues as influential makeup artist Val Garland shares her experiences of working with designer Gareth Pugh, filmmaker Ruth Hogben and M.A.C cosmetics. 

    Recalling Hogben’s fashion film to celebrate M.A.C’s collaboration with Pugh, Garland sat down with Nick Knight to discuss the difference between doing makeup for still images and films: ‘With photography, you have more time to make sure that what’s on your canvas is perfect from that angle- there’s more work involved for film because it’s got to look good from every angle, even the back.’ 

    Garland also talks about creative freedom- ‘Gareth said do what you want and that’s exactly what I wanted to hear’- and capturing Pugh’s distinctive aesthetic through the medium of makeup: ‘It’s mysterious, it’s quite gothic and dark, like Gareth, so I think it was a good collaboration.’ 

    Watch the interview now and don’t forget to revisit Garland in conversation with Terry Barber and SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard to hear the trio discuss Alexander McQueen show makeup as part of the 'V&A Connects' series.

    The British supermodel sat down with Nick Knight to candidly discuss the image’s nudity (‘I was like oh shit, I’m naked in Ibiza, people are beeping their horns- it was just such a spectacle’), the perils of over-production- ‘You can’t take away spontaneity from a photograph’- and the excitement of posing for Mert & Marcus: ‘As a model, sometimes knowing less is best- you’re thrown into it and it’s like an instinctual reaction happens.’

    County of Milan: A fashion film by Marcelo Burlon

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    SHOWstudio presents a new fashion film created by Marcelo Burlon for his brand County of Milan. Released in tandem with the A/W 15 collection, the film is a celebration of bravery and passion.

    The collection plays with the esoteric dualism between the black and the red, inspired by gauchos from Burlon’s homeland, Patagonia. ‘Its core mood is a contemporary reinterpretation of gaucho apparel with a hint of intergalactic futurism - a space gaucho’ Burlon explains. The concept of the film is ignited by legendary dancer and choreographer, Maurice Bejart's 1961 Ravel Boero, which too used black and red as a leitmotif, yet the feeling differs completely. 

    Directed by Daniel Sannwald, alongside creative director Heiko Keinath and with make-up by Isamaya Ffrench, the idea is brought to life by dancers Louis McMiller, Kukiko Takase and Karen Bengo.

    Watch County of Milan’s film exclusively on SHOWstudio!

    Marques'Almeida S/S 15 competition winner announced!

    SHOWstudio is excited to announce Ronan Mckenzie as the winner of our Marques’Almeida S/S 15 campaign competition!

    Mckenzie was born and raised in Walthamstow, North East London. The twenty year old stylist and photographer’s work is based around her local London, inspired by interesting clothes and people that capture a certain nonchalance.

    Mckenzie’s submission consisted of a playful short film and stills shot on an old JVC tape recorder, which was then plugged into a TV and filmed again on her iPhone. From the exuberant performances of models Jessie Keegan and Ellen Rose Christophers to the nostalgic filming process, the film captures Marques’Almeida’s undone aesthetic perfectly.

    Explore the piece now and look back through the rest of the submissions alongside Marques'Almeida's S/S 15 effortless campaign.
