Richard was a beautiful, bright and talented soul and such a supporter and friend to SHOWstudio over the years. In July 2009, our former fashion director Alexander Fury had the pleasure of interviewing Richard for our rolling In Fashion series. 'I think all that you need to worry about is what’s right in front of you and let destiny control the rest,’ he says, as a closing note, before smiling - that gorgeous, uplifting, infectious smile.

In the latest instalment of Sportswear, a project exploring the history of key garments motivated by the influence of sporty shapes in high-fashion, Elgar Johnson - fashion director of British GQ Style - talks about his personal relationship with the tracksuit, and sports brand snobbery.
Johnson explains, 'I think the beauty of the tracksuit is that anyone can wear it anytime and it’s accessible to anyone. I think that as soon as you start putting things on catwalks, it almost makes it that only a certain person can wear it, they have to be a certain size, they have to have a certain look, and I don’t really believe in that.'
