    Enter our Marques'Almeida campaign competition

    Create your own Marques'Almeida campaign for the chance to win a piece from the label, fresh from the runway!

    Encapsulating the undone aesthetic that underpins their collections, the Marques'Almeida S/S 15 campaign is the antidote to the photoshopped advertising imagery that dominates fashion. The M'A duo handed creative responsibility to their young studio team, the same crew that made the collection, and asked them to follow their intuition and dream freely.

    In keeping with Marques'Almeida's passion for street-inspired fashion and their love for the raw, honest imagery of style titles such as The Face and early Dazed & Confused, SHOWstudio, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida invite you to eschew Photoshop and the expensive production that goes behind polished high fashion campaigns and offer up your own home-crafted Marques'Almeida S/S 15 campaign.

    Either style yourself in some new season Marques'Almeida, or choose something in homage to the brand - a vintage piece, some frayed denim to channel the M'A signature, an item borrowed from a friend or even nothing at all! The 'campaigns' can be as literal or as conceptual as you like. Use the images shot by M'A's brilliant studio team as your inspiration and get submitting via Twitter or Instagram using #MarquesAlmeidaxSHOWstudio or email

    The shots will be judged by Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida. They'll be looking for the most creative, inspiring entries - ones that capture and celebrate the M'A ethos the best. The winner will receive their very own piece of M'A clothing - an effortless, wear-with-anything, unisex baby blue denim tunic. The competition closes Monday, 13 April 2015. Get creative - all you need is an iPhone camera.

    In Conversation: Gareth Pugh and Lou Stoppard

    In a new addition to our In Conversation interview project, Lou Stoppard and Gareth Pugh took part in a talk as part of the V&A’s Talking Fashion series.

    ‘London’s a big part of me, who I am and what the work’s about,’ explained the designer on the subject of his decision to return to London Fashion Week. Pugh revealed that the themes of Englishness within his immersive Autumn/Winter 2015 show centred around the creative potential of the make-do-and-mend aesthetic, something he perceives as a particularly English style of beauty; ‘If you have all the money in the world and all the options available to you, you can get a little blind-sided with what you actually want to do,’ he reasoned. The conversation also covered Pugh’s path into fashion and his resistance to the commercial demands of the fashion industry.  

    Watch the conversation now, and be sure to take a look at footage from the Gareth Pugh Autumn/Winter 2015 show exclusively on SHOWstudio.

The spectacle opened with a fashion film by Pugh's long-term collaborator Ruth Hogben, presenting a character engaged in a ritual act of liberation, cutting her hair and annointing herself with the Saint George's Cross. Hogben also filmed the runway show, complete with its soundtrack by Matthew Stone, featuring the chants of Sunderland Football Club.

    Lily Cole on working with Nick Knight and SHOWstudio

    The latest interview in our ongoing Subjective series is here. Nick Knight continues to explore the story of contemporary fashion photography from the model’s perspective, this week's instalment sees him sit down with Lily Cole.

    Cole discusses working on Knight and John Galliano’s Editing Fashion project for SHOWstudio (her first foray into film), and her love of acting over modelling. ‘I quite quickly felt frustrated with modelling that I couldn’t be more involved creatively. If you’re a creative person it’s quite a restrictive feeling if you’re not able to exercise that in some way’ she explains.  

    Nick also asks Cole how she feels about the continuing scrutinisation of models’ bodies by the media. ‘I just kind of ignore it as a debate,’ she respond, ‘there are problems in the representation of ideal beauty… but I don’t think that’s unique to fashion.’

    Watch the interview now and stay tuned for the next episode of Subjective.

    Miu Miu's De Djess

    There is a scene right at the end of Alice Rohrwacher’s sweet and funny film for Miu Miu’s ninth instalment of their Women’s Tales project that will strike a chord with anyone who’s ever, half-heartedly, faced a wall of cameras or even a single culprit. I won’t give it away but, “it’s the dream!” according to Rohrwacher. The power of a good dress!

    The Italian director and writer, whose second feature film, The Wonders, was awarded the Grand Prix at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, told me over cappuccinos in New York how the collaboration with the brand came to be. She asked Miu Miu – 'the right choice because of the irony, this offbeat elegance they have' - to dress her for Cannes, 'I knew I wanted to go to like a circus ringmaster or the person that trains lions! It’s a very fragile moment, no? And they imagined something for me that made me feel strong in that moment. That was the beginning.' In Venice, they asked her to make this film and while already in the Excelsior hotel that’s almost a supporting character in De Djess, she looked around and decided to make a fairy tale using what was in front of her; the paparazzi, the army of housekeepers, the dress. 'It’s completely autobiographical - I’m the dress!' she says and laughs. 'I didn’t want to tell a story and then hide the dresses inside it. I wanted to do a story with the dress and about the dress. Nothing too intellectual - we sometimes need a fairy tale in our lives.' And so the dress comes to life, like a newborn baby, and we see and, most importantly, hear everything from its perspective. 'When you’re born you don’t understand language, everything is just sound so we made up a language that’s all about sound, but it’s familiar enough like English.'

    So, what does one of the most exciting filmmakers in European cinema at the moment, make of the scarce attention being given to female directors and writers? This is Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales, after all. She is as direct and unswerving as you would hope. 'I would like it if somebody would do a series of films about male directors. People should start saying 'male' director: 'Let’s go see the last movie from this male director.' 'What do you think of this movie from this male director?' 'Do you know there is a new male director?' Words and names are important. We need to start concentrating on what’s being done instead of who’s doing it.' Well, this director, busy writing her next feature – 'ideas are like plants, you can’t completely abandon them but you can’t overwater them because they won’t grow either.' – has decided that for the screening party later that day she might just leave the circus whips behind, the lion having been tamed after all. 'Tonight', she says rather excitedly, 'I think I’ll wear a skirt!'
