Tumblr Takeover: Ugly

Launched on 01 August 2014

This month our Tumblr guest curation comes from inside the SHOWstudio team, focussing on our new rolling series — Ugly — an exploration of the current vogue for awkwardness and bad taste on the runways. Fashion filmmaker Ruth Hogben and our own Lou Stoppard will be teaming up to create a special Ugly curation, revealing the inspirations and ideas that go behind that series, from Ruth Hogben's film references to catwalk looks that contextualise the history and development of the 'ugly' movement.
