Party Of The Week: Oh, what a great Knight
Friday 25 September 2009
Fashion met art at Somerset House on Monday night at the opening party for photographer Nick Knight's new exhibition 'SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution'. Housed in the new home of London Fashion Week, which has been in full swing, it showcases works from Knight's pioneering online fashion and art project 'SHOWstudio', a series of online collaborations, with photographers, artists, writers and designers, which offers an insight into the high-end world of fashion, with projects, film and live performance.
Naomi Campbell, who has a seven-metre-tall statue of herself in the exhibition, which can be scribbled on via a touch screen, walked the fuchsia pink carpet into the party, wearing a canary yellow micro-mini.
She was joined by the pop star Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream with his wife Katy England, Erin O'Connor, donning a mini bowler hat, and the shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, wearing a purple suit and a pair of electric blue slippers.
Knight who will shoot 100 portraits of London's models, actors, musicians and artists from behind a two-way mirror in the exhibition , arrived with his wife Charlotte and their three children.
Guests sipped pink champagne in long-stemmed flutes and walked through a mirrored room, to the main exhibition space, where they could immerse themselves in various interactive pieces. They spilled out into street, while behind them the neon strobe lights from another installation, starring supermodel Campbell, who is firing a gun, flashed from the entrance.
