Kate Moss to me is an absolute icon. I could honestly sit here and write for hours about Kate. In fact, I could probably dedicate a whole blog about her. But for now, I'll tell you about my recent trip to the SHOWstudio in London which is currently showcasing, the 'Moving Kate' exhibition.
'Moving Kate' is an exhibition which features many different illustrations and artworks on Kate's most iconic catwalk looks, all of which were handpicked by herself, and the iconic Fashion Photographer; Nick Knight, owner of SHOWstudio.
I was first made aware of the exhibition when I came across an image of the launch night, and almost immediately I was booking my tickets down to London.. Situated on Ebury Street, it is rather hidden away and I must admit, I walked past the building initially! Thanks to my 'trusty' iPhone Maps, I eventually found it and made my way into the Studio. A lot smaller than I imagined it would be, however it felt more intimate and personal with all of the artworks being grouped together.
The drawing which caught my eye immediately, was of Kate from the Louis Vuitton show, which was shown in monochrome with a bold splash of red around made for a striking piece and was perfectly done. I also have my own canvas of her from this particular catwalk! Another standout piece for me, was the miniature sculpture of her.
As I made my way around each image, it was refreshing and interesting to see how others view Kate Moss. Whether it be perfectly drawn with intricate detailing, or more abstract with bold, larger than life features!
A couple of my favourites from the exhibition were;
- Jowy Maasdamme - Alexander McQueen, Voss, S/S '01
- Bex Cassie - Alexander McQueen, S/S '98
- Laura Laine - Alexander McQueen, 'The Widows Of Culloden', A/W '06
- Clément Louis - John Galliano, S/S '96
'Moving Kate' exhibition is currently showcasing and is free to the public. The exhibition will commence on 20th April, so if you're a fan of Kate Moss, then don't miss out! It is open Monday-Friday from 10:30am-6pm and is being held at;
22D Ebury Street
