SHOWstudio pop-up gallery launched in London


Last week I was kindly invited to have a private viewing of SHOWstudio’s fashion illustration collection, at their new pop-up gallery in Floral Street, Covent Garden. On show were works from fashion illustrators commissioned by Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio site, which can also be purchased.

Nick Knight is a long-time supporter of creativity in the fashion industry, from emerging talent to established illustrators. Some of the fashion illustrators on show are Dylan Qin, Blair Breitsenstein and Velwyn Corker. The seasonal  fashion collections have been documented through fashion illustration, with artist and illustrators capturing their favourite designs as they appear on the runway.


From time to time the pop-up illustration gallery will invite a selection of SHOWstudio illustrators to take up residency, which will give the public a chance to see them at work.
