Piers Atkinson had an exciting week, taking part in the live studio sessions at SHOWstudio HQ where designers take residency for the online audience to view their working practise. "The Language Of Flowers" was Piers addition to the current Flora exhibition at the gallery shop for which he made three hats over the course of two days to be added to the catalogue of pieces. Whilst Piers and his team of millinery assistants constructed the headwear they chatted and answered incoming questions so the title of "language" had quite a literal context. In the background illustrator Philip Dunn painted a wall of roses onto the scoop which became the set for an epic shoot at the end of the event. Kim Howells brought in three exceptional models, some incredible gowns, Andrew Gallimore crafted 3D makeup and Nick Knight captured the whole thing all under the live stream cameras. Here are Kim Howells photos from the day to show the highlights from Jade Parfitt backstage to Piers wearing his Zandra Rhodes apron.
And edited version of the footage will be uploaded to SHOWstudio if you missed it and the three final headpieces will now be available to visit and purchase at the SHOP.
