THE FASHION BODY
With films from London designers Louise Goldin and Mary Katrantzou charting the right foot and hips respectively, this week we reach the end of our Fashion Body film and essay programme, and hence the end of this whirlwind trip around the human form through fashion film. Alongside essays by academics and journalists including Professor Christopher Breward, Susanna Lau, Harriet Walker and Fleur Britten, the series has featured filmic shorts from a flurry of influential and visionary names, from photographers Steven Klein and Tim Walker to designers Gareth Pugh and Rick Owens, hair extraordinaire Sam McKnight and music icon Lady Gaga. 

On Friday 3 December, the final step of our Fashion Body project will launch: an interactive specially created by multimedia designer Daniel Brown envisaging each fashion body film as part of a constantly-moving and whole Fashion Body, released alongside our forty-first and final Fashion Body film, from SHOWstudio.com founder and director Nick Knight.

LIGHT FRAGMENT, 2009
#########
Award winning American artist Mary Temple has paved the way in installation art for almost a decade. The much-deserved recipient of the 2010 Basil Alkazzi Award for Excellence in Painting produces visual illusions that are often overlooked by the viewer. The breathtaking piece Light Fragment is no exception. At a first glance it is seemingly an intricate shadow cast by a tree upon a shard of wall and wooden floor, yet after closer examination, the presumed light source is non-existent and the shadow is in fact a painting. Executed with such precision and created with such ability, Temple’s ability to capture people’s perceptions through art is a rare feat. See for yourself at our new exhibition – Florist.

FASHION PANOPTICON: STEPHEN JONES
#########
Back in 2004, the doors to Stephen Jones' studio opened to offer a glimpse into the space from which Jones' couture hats are born. Having made hats for the likes of Boy George, Grace Jones and the Spandeau Ballet, Jones's creations for designers such as John Galliano, Comme des Garçons and Jean Paul Gaultier have come to equate his name with a joyful mix of wit and beauty. Alongside an interactive tour of the space, a short interview follows, with Jones describing his inspiration as 'elegant yet frivolous, historic yet moderne!'
