    It's the final week of our McQueen: The London Years film series

    We're almost at the end of our McQueen: The London Years analysis film series. Acclaimed fashion journalist and friend of the late Lee McQueen Susannah Frankel sat down with Nick Knight to unpick the collections pictured in Knight's images for AnOther magazine. So far they've discussed everything from the unique beauty of classic McQueen tailoring to his tenure at Givenchy and the now-iconic Bumster trouser: 'There was no doubt that Lee brought that in and everyone else sanitised it...It was really influential and it was powerfully erotic.'

    A new film will be released each day until 22 May - stay tuned!

    SHOWstudio take-over at Graduate Fashion Week

    We are very excited to announce that we will be taking over the photo studio at Graduate Fashion Week on Saturday 30 May! 

    Using the Xbox Kinect infrared laser scanner and the latest 3D scanning software, we will be asking sitters to remain still for up to 2 minutes, as individuals or in groups, whilst we capture their likeness. A 15 second animated video will then be sent directly to the sitter(s) to share to their own social media outlets. Sitters can decide from a variety of materials to be rendered in - whether burning chrome, oil or others - to encourage individuality and self expression through a new type of portrait sitting.

    We have been experimenting with 3D scanning for over 15 years to capture the likes of Daphne GuinnessKanye WestNaomi Campbell and the Victoria's Secret Angels for projects in music, advertising and editorial thresholds. Graduate Fashion Week trustee, Hilary Alexander OBE has been the first to be 3D scanned by SHOWstudio for this project, see her film on the @OfficialGFW Instagram page now!

    Guests with tickets to the exhibition or catwalk shows on Saturday 30 May have the opportunity to take part in the activities with SHOWstudio on the day on a first come first serve basis, so don't hesitate to drop by! 

    Tickets for Graduate Fashion Week are available here.

    Watch the final edit of Nasir Mazhar's In Fashion interview

    Edited footage of Nasir Mazhar's candid In Fashion interview is now available! The London designer sat down with SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard to discuss growing up, the Nasir 'gang' and why he disagrees with the way his clothes are categorsied: 'It’s just fashion. I think it’s kind of rude to call it streetwear. Or sportswear. You don’t play sport in it, do you? Why don’t they just call it fashion?'

    Watch the condensed conversation now and check out the rest of the In Fashion series. Up next: Peter Saville

    Nick Knight shoots Craig Green's debut campaign!

    We are delighted to announce Nick Knight’s collaboration with esteemed menswear designer Craig Green. The pair have united to create Green's first brand campaign, promoting his Autumn/Winter 15 collection. 

    Since his graduate collection received the L’Oreal Professional Creative Award and was nominated for the Design Museum’s Design of the Year 2013, Green's career has gone from strength to strength. SHOWstudio has followed Green’s ascent closely. Knight explains, 'There's a brilliant tension to Craig's work - on one hand it's so simple and pure, rooted in ideas of traditional masculine work wear, but on the other it's so dynamic, so theatrical - full of energy and movement. That combination is what makes it so special to photograph.'

    The campaign has been confirmed to run in a number of media print titles later this year. In addition, Knight and Green have produced a film, which will be released in the lead up to London Collections Men exclusively on SHOWstudio. 

    On working with Knight on this exciting project Green commented, 'I have always been a huge admirer of Nick's work, he has incredible vision and technical skill and this comes through in so many varied ways. He really understood what we wanted to express and the energy of the Autumn Winter ‘15 collection. The support of Nick, his team and SHOWstudio has been incredible.'

    Keep your eyed peeled for the outcome of this dynamic collaboration. Why not revisit Lou Stoppard’s interview with Green while you wait?

    Hari Nef's Tumblr Take-over has officially begun! The actress, writer and model introduced her guest curation with a statement of intent: 'The fact is: fashion doesn’t care about trans issues, but it absolutely loves the trans aesthetic. Fashion loves fluidity, movement, role play, discovery–body joy and body horror. These are what they are, but in the context of bodies and clothes I would argue that they comprise what I call the trans aesthetic.'
