    Natalie Choi is our Design Download Winner!

    Natalie Choi is the winner of our eleventh Design Download competition!

    The pattern was kindly given by British Womenswear designer Simone Rocha, winner of the 2016 Best British Womenswear Designer Award, from her S/S 14 collection. The original collection was based around Rocha's Irish upbringing, while still inkeeping with the elegant femininity signature within her work.

    Choi's interpretation used block colour and stiff suede to highlight the cut and varying elements. An interesting contrast and alternate rendition to the original piece.

    As a result of her fantastic entry, Choi will recieve a specially commissioned print from Fiona Gourlay, which displays her interpretation of the S/S 14 skirt.

    Congratulations to Natalie Choi!

    New project! 'Constructed' launches today!

    Constructed launches today!

    As a fashion film championing platform, SHOWstudio has always encouraged and supported up-and-coming fashion filmmakers. Last year, we began collaborating with Zhejiang Fashion Institute, in Ningbo, China, by providing its students multiple film briefs to follow. Created by SHOWstudio Director Nick Knight, designer Gareth Pugh and artist Rei Nadal, each brief consisted of exploring different film matters, such as fashion in motion, portraits and narratives.

    Watch the winning films as they showcase students exploring the concepts of fashion film for the first time, as well as making use of the unique materials at their disposal.

    Inspired by the influence of late Chinese photographer Ren Hang, Lara Johnson-Wheeler has written an essay, Red Flag, Blue Pencil, exploring the effect the 'The Great Firewall of China' has had on creativity and self-expression.

    Conducted by SHOWstudio Junior Editor Georgina Evans, Constructed also features an image-led interview with artist and educator Layla Sailor, explaining how censorship influences the education of young filmmakers in China.

    Examine the balance of expression and restraint in art, fashion and photography now.

    Wolfgang Tillmans: 2017

    In preparation for the latest installment in our In Camera series, SHOWstudio visited the most recent exhibition of Turner Prize winning photographer, Wolfgang Tillmans.

    Held in the South Tank of the Tate Modern, the curated aesthetic was true to Tillmans' style. Through exploring the possibilities of space, Tillmans provoked an emotional reaction from the viewer; whether that was through varied size of prints in each room or the emmersive sound experience. 

    The starting point for the work featured was 2003, often noted as the time when Tillmans' became politically awakened. The political theme continued heavily throughout. It was apparent that this exhibition was to be remembered as a moment in time - 2017 to be exact. He was clear in his political feelings. Having walked around, you got the sense that, for him, doing this exhibition may have been somewhat theraputic. Working through his ideals of the last fourteen years must have allowed some clarity of thought.

    Spread through fourteen rooms, the viewer is able to move seamlessly between the old and the new. His work with i-D, his personal documentation of friends and family and even his collaborative work with Frank Ocean sat comfortably next to each other whilst conveying Tillmans' greater message. No matter what you left the exhibition feeling, one thing was for sure, it made you think and reflect; having a voice in these current times is very important. 

    Lou Stoppard will interview Wolfgang Tillmans on the 10th April 2017 12:15 GMT, as part of our rolling In Camera interview series. The exhibition continues to run at The Tate Modern until 11 June 2017.
