Saturday 6th October: SHOWstudio Live Panel Discussions

For the duration of the SS13 fashion weeks, SHOWstudio have been reporting on the shows via a live stream of panel discussions with different guests selected on their relevant specific skills for commentary on the collections.  I was asked in to offer input on two occasions - firstly one of the opening acts at Victoria Beckham in New York and later Commes Des Garcons on the closing of the season in Paris.  Both designers and brands are on disparate ends of the spectrum in the business of fashion but both equally fascinating especially in the company of co-hosts including Camilla Mortan, Colin McDowell and Trino Verkade.  SHOWstudio's own in-house critic Lou Stoppard did a sterling performance of hosting every single session throughout the weeks and wrote a lovely summary of the project over on their blog, where you can read the full list of contributors.  The live footage has recorded for on demand playback if you missed any of the coverage when first broadcast.  I can particularly recommend the Dior day when Camilla Mortan accounts a complete history of the label from her superior knowledge having worked within the walls of the couture house alongside Galliano.  Head over to the site to scroll thru the coverage and compiled Instagram photos and Tweets from the cyber world.
