Keep an eye on SHOWstudio for upcoming panels over the course of the following menswear and couture shows.........
Extremely excited that one of my favourite all time artists Mariko Mori is showing in London again! Photography is actually prohibited inside the exhibition so here is just a taster............. from some stealth snapping......

I ended my second day of London Collections Men at SHOWstudio to take part in the live panel discussion, reviewing the Sibling show - whilst illustrator Helen Bullock was in the adjacent room sketching away. Here is a snapshot of her tools, sketches of Hilary Alexander, Colin McDowell and Sibling knit from the show......... and an earlier watercolour from the Christopher Shannon collection.
Follow Helen's sketches as they stream over on SHOWstudio and the industry insider debates on demand here.
Martine Rose took inspiration from her time spent in Jamaica and specifically the rites and rituals of the Rasta community's status symbols, displayed in attitude rather than riches .................. with her models spinning on a turntable wearing Selassie emblazoned prints, Jah jogging bottoms and bar beer mat bombers!
