    Nick Knight 'Still' opens in Tokyo at The Mass on 10 November

    Nick Knight Still opens in Tokyo at The Mass on 10 November 

    Showcasing a perhaps more personal side of his career, Still demonstrates a constant desire to experiment in three distinct bodies, 'Flora', 'Roses, Photo paintings' and 'Roses from My Garden'. Unlike other more conventional images of flowers, Knight’s compositions are balanced and harmonious, moving the viewer to consider the innate power of nature and its fleeting beauty. 

    Making an international debut, the 'Roses from my Garden' series speaks to themes that Knight often grapples with. For Knight, modern photography isn't tied to any of the things it used to be - chemistry, science, printing processes. With this body of work, Knight returns to a traditional glass plate printing process to play with how we see his contemporary compositions through the lens of a traditional boundary.

    Still, The Mass, from 10 November to 16 December 2018.

    SHOWstudio presents 100 Women

    SHOWstudio presents 100 Women, an exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the UK.

    SHOWstudio asked 100 models to select the look in which they felt the most empowered; curator Bex Cassie then appointed an artist for each look to translate into a fashion illustration. 

    For the first time ever, SHOWstudio will open a previously closed section of its studio to the public, dedicating the entire space as an ode to these women. In a fashion landscape where physical, sexual and financial abuse have long been the norm, this exhibition presents women and dress as carriers of the agency.

    To chime with the occasion, the SHOWstudio team are curating the Tumblr for the show's first week. Head to our Tumblr Takeover for an all-round tour and behind-the-scenes content!

    100 Women will be open to the public from 2 November to 31 January 2019.

    Val Garland releases her first book, Validated

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    Fashion’s leading makeup artist Val Garland has released her first book, Validated, sharing her career highlights and the inspiration behind some of her most iconic looks. From sexy to savage, raw to colour chaos, the book charts the key themes surrounding Val’s work alongside backstage imagery and anecdotes from leading industry figures.

    Best known for her inimitable aesthetic, unorthodox approach and radical creative energy, her work has spanned the runways of Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, and the campaigns of Dior and Mulberry.

    Val once told Nick Knight in our ‘Transformative’ series, ‘Often I don’t like being in front of the camera. I’d rather be behind it.’ A rare insight into the world of an industry visionary, Val speaks for the first time about working with the likes of Kate Moss, Edward Enninful, John Galliano, Nick Knight and more – revealing the processes behind her numerous creative collaborations.

    Revisit Val’s work in our 2002 project ‘Make It Up’ and ’Transformative’ series, as she chats candidly about her craft and longstanding industry experience.

    Shirin Neshat's portrait of Malala Yousafzai revealed at The National Portrait Gallery

    The National Portrait Gallery has unveiled a picture of Nobel Peace Laureate Malala Yousafzai shot by Shirin Neshat at SHOWstudio last spring.  Shirin took a second portrait of Malala which will be unveiled at Birmingham Museum in 2020. 

    Iranian-born artist and film-maker Shirin Neshat has inscribed by hand in calligraphy on to the portraits a poem, in Yousafzai’s honour, by the Pashtu poet Rahman Shah Sayel.

    Here at SHOWstudio there was obvious excitement on the day of Malala’s arrival. Neshat said at first she felt intimidated, “Yet as she arrived at the studio to be photographed,” she said, “I was immediately taken aback by her timid, gentle and innocent demeanour. To this day, when I look back on our encounter, I am left with impressions of humility, wisdom and a rare sense of inner beauty.”

    On this occasion, and to learn more about this important artist, revisit our In Your Face interview  of Shirin Neshat by Carrie Scott, recorded on the same day.

    A collaboration between SHOWstudio and Marks & Spencer for the A/W 18 Holiday Collection

    SHOWstudio have teamed up with Marks & Spencer for the exclusive preview of their A/W 2018 Holiday Collection. 

    Last week at M&S's PR event, SHOWstudio's fashion illustrator Fiona Gourlay was invited to customise a new season tote in her whimsical and feminine style.  The tote, with its versatile reversible design, was illustrated both inside and out and was given away to one lucky winner of the customisation challenge, using the hashtags #aw18mands and #mandsxshowstudio.    

    To launch this exciting collaboration, Fiona led an illustration and customisation workshop with British fashion’s leading journalists and influencers and created a mural inspired by the nautical colours of the collection.

    This is just another one of many successful commissions and collaborations the SHOWstudio illustration gallery has undertaken in a very busy 2018.  We are always looking for new partners to help bring the beauty of contemporary fashion illustration to the public’s attention.  Should you or your brand wish to partner with us or hear about the creative services we can provide, please feel free to contact our Gallery Manager and Artist Liaison, Bex Cassie via email bex.cassie@showstudio.com
