    THE REBELS 2015

    We are delighted to announce that SHOWstudio are the winners of the 'most creative collaboration' award at the REBELS 2015! 

    The collision of luxury and lifestyle is fracturing the contemporary travel industry, transforming travel brands into lifestyle brands with a distaste for the conventional. THE REBELS recognise those creative dissenters whose fight for their individual cause finds them at the forefront of this new, limited edition take on travel.

    This year’s shortlist was compiled by a creative cartel of cross-industry artists whose own experience in deviating from the norm won them a place on the judging panel. Then the collective had their say when they voted on the winners at LE Miami 2015.  

    To coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach and the launch of the hotel, SHOWstudio partnered with The Miami Beach EDITION to host a series of interviews with creative visionaries in contemporary culture, including renowned hotelier Ian Schrager, who discusses the American dream in an interview with Carrie Scott, on location in Miami from the hotel’s exclusive new bungalows. 

    Massive thanks to EDITION and Purple PR for all their help.

    The Adoration of the Pilgrim: A new fashion film

    SHOWstudio is proud to present ‘The Adoration of the Pilgrim’, a haunting new fashion film collaboration between designer Edward Crutchley and director Ollie Evans. Inspired by the idea of pilgrimage, both traditional and modern, the film juxtaposes the traditional holy man with a surfer- one on a search for enlightenment, the other on a quest for the perfect wave. 

    ‘When I started talking to Ollie about these themes, he immediately hit on the perfect idea of a tableaux vivant inspired by renaissance religious painting. We both knew this would hit the right mix between the stillness and beauty of the film composition and the brightness and simplicity of the clothing. The mix of these elements creates a strong, modern image- everything that Edward Crutchley is about,’ explains Crutchley. 

    Watch the film now!

    Subjective: Karen Elson on Mario Sorrenti

    SHOWstudio’s Subjective series instigated by Nick Knight to explore the history of contemporary fashion photography through the eyes of the models continues. In the latest instalment, Karen Elson and Knight forthrightly discuss Mario Sorrenti, body image, beauty and nudes.

    Seen as the ‘antichrist of fashion photography’, in a time when heroin chic had taken its hold of the fashion industry, Sorrenti’s striking images of Elson sits on the blurred boundary between the fashion and art spheres. Elson considered her changing outlook on nudes acknowledging ardently to Knight that ‘there has to be a tenderness’ and a ‘sensitivity’ and convening also on the ever underlying and conflicted moral dilemma surrounding body image and size in the fashion industry.  

    Watch the interview now and review the ever-growing series to hear models including Kate Moss, Lily Cole and Alek Wek discuss their experiences and the making of iconic images.

    Review Liberty McAnena's Tumblr take-over

    Last week fashion history and theory graduate Liberty McAnena became the latest person to take up the reins of the SHOWstudio Tumblr with her exploration of nostalgia. 

    McAnena's curation focused first on childhood, emphasising the somewhat contradictory nature of fashion's preoccupation with the past while also being an industry that thrives on newness and forward thinking. Day two constituted a hark back to high school days, as McAnena used an iconic shoot for The Face, by Sofia Coppola and Corinne Day, as one point of reference for fashion's obsession with preppy. McAnena went on to look at love and its undeniable evocation of nostalgia, while also exploring fashion's fetishisation of trauma. Day five saw a mesmeric manifestation of retrofuturism. Givenchy by Alexander McQueen, A/W 99 was just one point of reference for how fashion, while certainly fond of romanticising the past, is equally keen on idealising the future. 

    McAnena's complete curation is now available to view. Why not also peruse her own brilliant Tumblr page, which combines archive editorial imagery with poignant film stills and photography tied loosely around themes of youth, femininity and sensuality.

The up-and-coming designer also answered questions from the audience in two Q&A sessions; 'For me, I'm not interested in doing womenswear and menswear, unisex is much more attractive' she explained.

    Day one of our Faustine Steinmetz live studio is over

    The first part of our three-day Sculpting Denim live studio with designer Faustine Steinmetz has come to a close.

    So far Steinmetz has begun crafting her one-off garment live on camera, weaving and making bobbins under the watchful eye of her dog Buzz. The LVMH prize nominee also answered questions from the audience in two Q&A sessions; 'One of the problems with working in denim is that you need to educate your customer somehow. Even though it looks like it, what I make is not a pair of jeans!' she says of her signature fabric.

    Tune in again on Thursday 4 June at 11:00 BST to watch Steinmetz's progress. In the meantime, submit more questions for tomorrow's Q&A sessions!
