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.
