Oh have we got something good for you! The secret's finally out - SHOWstudio's unmissable new video series Fashion Radio is coming soon. For the first time, we show the inseparable ties between fashion and music's unbreakable bond, as we're joined by some of the most influential figures from the industry.
Music and fashion go hand in hand, whether that be on the catwalk, a fashion photographer’s studio or models’ personal playlists, to the music you hear in store, the tunes you dance to at the after-party, or even music's close affiliation with subcultural style tribes - think David Bowie and Glam Rock, or Lady Gaga and her Little Monsters. Back in 2006, we embarked on an ongoing mission to explore the relationship between fashion and music. The Sound of Clothes looked at fashion in motion and what garments sound like when they move. Come 2009, and SHOWstudio launched the project Fashion DJs, where our founder Nick Knight invited a number of fashion creatives and personalities to be a 'Fashion DJ' over three days at the infamous Abbey Road Studios, celebrating the everlasting bond between musical performance and fashion exhibitionism. Then, in 2011, Fashion Mix invited everyone from Kali Uchis to Craig Green and Manolo Blahnik to create a 'greatest hits' playlist.
Now, Fashion Radio asks the people who have created the soundtracks for fashion, with some of the industry's biggest names, to compile a playlist of the songs which have taken them from catwalk to after-party. The first part of the series is hosted by the legendary DJ Fat Tony, who has created the soundtracks for countless fashion events. Across a series of playful and in-depth video episodes, taking place inside SHOWstudio’s very own radio booth, no conversation is off-limits as models Kate Moss and Duckie Thot, designers Charles Jeffrey and Gareth Pugh, image-maker Nick Knight, DJ and performer Jodie Harsh, stylist Kyle De'Volle and rock royalty Kelly Osbourne each play their top 10 tracks. Unpicking the links between the music of their lives and the fashion that went with it, from the influence of The Rolling Stones on Moss’ personal style to Osbourne's royal rock 'n' roll upbringing, Fashion Radio singles out music and fashion's symbiotic and everlasting relationship.
‘If you listen to people’s music you can guess what that person’s about. It kind of maps out their life for you’, says Fat Tony.
Stay tuned, this is one you don't want to miss.
