Was that keen to get right to the preview of SHOWstudios Fashion Revolution that I passed the builders erecting the London Fashion Week tent, Bacchus show space production team and an unfortunate employee hobbling down a slope on crutches! then passed security missed the usual backstage footage.. we went straight to go. Menswear stylist Simon Foxtons installation "Sittings" is the first instalment of our SHOWstudio Fashion Revolution preview. And its characteristic of the style of concepts that SHOWstudio are legendary for.
"are you allowed to talk? I ask
no Duke signs.. pointing to the telephone beside him.. 'call me'
are you serious..?
yes he nods..
oh dear.. what a drag ;-)
I guess i'm going to have to call you.. ((smiling))
First time for both of us he's a living and I'm recording our conversation on my mobile, pointing the Flip and trying to take in the whole of the look Simon Foxtons styled from Alexander McQueens S/S 2010 collection. Trying to get everything from the hat to footwear in one frame. Which as you can see worked well if you ignore Dukes missing feet. As you listen to the conversation you'll notice its cut short. Sony Ericsson VideoDJ had reached maximum capacity but the rest of it went along the longs of what you wearing? give us a twirl.. and what you reading Duke? ..John Grisham. hows it going Duke?.. "its pretty cool" he says.
And then I'm struck again by just how much of is required of models in assignments like these. More than standard physical attributes. Now voice and speech are included its obviously going to be important that they're fairly comfortable acting and charming the audience, and their voice needs to be right.
