Zena Holloway é uma fotógrafa britânica. Estas fotografias, da série Angels (2013), chegaram-me através da newsletter da Saatchi Gallery (se não conhecem apressem-se, mesmo porque vários artistas portugueses têm lá trabalho em exibição) e lembraram-me do brilhante vídeo Dynamic Blooms do Nick Knight para a SHOWstudio.
In September 2012 PhilipTreacy made an explosive return to London Fashion Week with a star-studded Swarovski-sponsored show featuring black models clad in outfits from Michael Jackson’s stage wardrobe and amazing, gravity-defying headwear. To celebrate the fierce attitudes and fabulous fashion on show, Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben collaborate on ‘Hatstand’, an energizing film starring Grace Bol.
“Isabella Blow is widely accepted as an icon - of fashion, style and British creativity. But she was so much more and icon just doesn’t stretch far enough to cover it all. She was a mentor to many, the designers, photographers and models she discovered and nurtured. She was inspiring not just because she looked fanfuckingtastic in whatever she wore but because she showcased the power that fashion has in the simple (although not in her case) act of dressing and putting a persona forward to a world often harsh and worse, bleak and boring.” - Kiki Georgiou
Xiao Wen Ju splashes around in the “Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!” film directed by Ruth Hogben. The SHOWStudio project esteems the extraordinary fashion icon, Isabella Blow. Blow is known for her impeccable taste and has even discovered designers such as Alexander McQueen and models such as Stella Tennant. Her eclectic wardrobe and fearless fashion vision is featured in the multidisciplinary project which also includes editorial images, anecdotes, and essays, all of which offer a unique perspective of the late fashion editor.
