Opening to the public tomorrow - and with a private view this evening - the SHOWstudio Shop is pleased to invite you to come To Bed. Given that during these winter months we tend to give over to hibernation, the somnolent exhibition is dedicated to the notion of sleep and its many representations in art and fashion. To Bed includes major works by Marina Bychkova, Chanel, Corinne Day, Jeremy Kost, Nick Knight, Mel Odom, Maiko Takeda, Viktor & Rolf, and Andy Warhol.

To Bed runs from Wednesday 26 January to 12 March 2011 at SHOWstudio Shop, 1-9 Bruton Place W1

This week marks the last instalment of our 200 Portraits project, showcasing the final day of video portraits filmed by Nick Knight during his landmark shoot for i-D's seminal 'Then Now Next' 30th anniversary issue. Alongside the luminaries already captured by Nick Knight, this final instalment includes stylists Katy England and Venetia Scott, art director Simon Costin (and a custom-crafted Stephen Jones hat) and graphic design legend Peter Saville with artist Anna Blessmann

Today's final selection of video portraits completes our 200 Portraits series, documenting not only this ground-breaking live shoot but a slice of twenty-first century popular culture as captured for the pages of one of the world's most influential style magazines. [more]
From Bowie to Bond, and back again - contributing fashion writer Hywel Davies rounds up our A/W 2011 catwalk reportage direct from the City of Light and the latest round of menswear shows. Davies' reviews, in addition to images by esteemed catwalk photographer Chris Moore, are uploaded, with highlights including Nicola Formichetti's debut show creative director at Mugler; Raf Simons' continuing innovation for his own label and Jil Sander; and Lucas Ossendrijver's latest offering for Lanvin. Having set the bar sky-high and given us an inkling of designers' imaginings for A/W, we shift our focus next to the female form and head to New York for the start of the Womenswear collections beginning 10 of February.

In our next In Fashion live interview, set to broadcast from 12:30 on 3 February, our Fashion Director Alexander Fury will hold court with celebrated British photographer and image-maker Alice Hawkins. In addition to being a contributor, most recently with a cinematic exploration of the A/W 2010 collections filtered through notions of English class consciousness in her film The Good Life, Hawkins has also shot stories for Pop, i-D, Russian Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and The Independent Magazine amongst others. Hawkins' audacious work continues to straddle the line between fine art and fashion, provoking a reevaluation of the definitions of taste from both industry and outsiders alike.

Our In Fashion interview with Alice Hawkins will be streamed live from 12:30 GMT Thursday 3 February 2011
ROSE RED, 1983
American artist Mel Odom has been producing award-winning art since the 1970’s and for our newest exhibition To Bed, Odom’s most iconic piece titled Rose Red is being exclusively shown. The illustration was originally created for a Playboy story back in 1983 and also includes a separate illustration of four solitary fallen petals. Produced using the everlasting Peerless Dyes and pencil, the sensual image of a beautiful sleeping woman, surrounded by red roses and thick locks of hair, invites the viewer into the land of comfort and sleep.

SLEEP, 2001
Positively lulled by tonight's opening of the latest Shop show To Bed, we daydream back to the very first ever global, live fashion shoot, 2001's Sleep. Taking place in the wee hours that stretched between the 10 and 11 of December 2001, viewers were invited to log on at midnight and witness a bevy of top models, groomed head to toe and dressed in the latest fashions, as their unconscious 'performances' were recorded in a series of intimate webcam stills.
