Since it was founded in 2000, London’s SHOWstudio has built up an enviable collection of original fashion illustrations — both for its seasonal coverage and other special projects. All of the pieces from the illustration archive — which were each commissioned by Nick Knight — are set to be displayed at a new pop-up exhibition in London’s Covent Garden.
Over the course of the exhibition — which opens on October 18 and runs until January next year — a number of SHOWstudio’s illustrators will take up a residency in the space, allowing the exhibition’s visitors to watch them work. With Rob Phillips’s art featured on the pop-up’s windows, visitors will also be able to sit on one of SHOWstudio’s panel sets, which will be set out as a reading corner with a carefully selected selection of books and magazines available to read.
As well as getting ready for the illustration exhibition, SHOWstudio’s Lou Stoppard recently sat down with Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones to talk about the designers’ relationships with Nike.
