SHOWstudio - LEO - Backstage images

Back in January I worked with director Jez Tozer and stylist Anna Trevelyan to art direct a series of six fashion films for SHOWstudio. The films inspired by the performanaces by aerialist Leo Hedman and with each fashion look draws on one key menswear designer using specially-commissioned pieces from the likes of Mugler, Walter Van Beirondonck, Nasir Mazhar and VoidofCourse.

'Every film depicts a different emotional state or world, brought to life by body artist Isamaya Ffrench The six works are The Lore, The Rapture, The Abyss, The Answer, The Hunger and The Hush; within each the featured emotional moods are carefully matched with the aesthetics of the separate contributing designers to facilitate a sense of unity between all aspects of the work.' - SHOWstudio.com
