Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2011 - The Film

Last night in Paris, Gareth Pugh let his entire collection ride on this 11 minute film via a gigantic screen. No catwalk show. I'd heard him hint he may move away from the conventional catwalk show format in a SHOWstudio interview earlier in the year. Directed once again by Ruth Hogben, it features Kristen McMenamy and is quite incredible. Enjoy.

See Gareth in action here.

Katie Eary

Alongside the more conventional ways of showcasing a collection, many designers are turning to film to ensure the 'mood' of their work continues to be conveyed long after Fashion Week. This mesmeric film of the brilliant Katie Eary's fall/winter 2010 menswear collection is entitled "Powereless" and was shot by Hidden Agency at London's derelict Heygate Estate.

House of Blueeyes @ London Fashion Week

Johnny Blueeyes loves women, he really does. Stylist to a ream of musicians and performers including Beth Ditto, Peaches, Lovefoxxx and Ana Matronic, he just wants us all to be free to enjoy fashion in a positive way and as individual 'superstars'. 

Johnny sent word out that for the House of Blueeyes show, something very exciting would be going down in a Shoreditch strip joint. 

He wasn't lying. First up, a pool table strewn with balls attached to knitted phalluses. I only discover they're stuffed with lavender when someone sticks one under my nose for a sniff. 

And talk about indecision... you simply can't imagine the cogitation that goes into choosing one of these...

In the pink is singer Charli XCX.

Mr Webster, part of Johnny's "Warholian" House of Blueeyes collective is the designer of the knitted cocks and a whole lot more. Lady Gaga wears his black cape on The Fame Monster album.

I hear Beyonce is also a fan. As we chat at the bar, Mr Webster quietly confides that tonight I'll be one of the first to see his latest creation unveiled...

And what a reveal...

This should be in the Olympics. Seriously.
