“The collection was based around ideas of reality and perspective. Warping and distorting how things are seen or viewed. I was looking a lot at the uniforms of postmen, cleaners, surgeons and nurses - the simplicity of clothing to be worn for a function.” We spoke to @craig__green after his SS19 show at @pitti_uomo_.

Sleeves bulged, stomachs were strapped up with giant knits and hips grew wider and wider, because Jeffrey started and ended by looking to celebrate the grotesque in terms of unexpected volume and fit. It was a Henry Moore sculpture walking down the runway, it was a Louise Bourgeois piece which would fit in your wardrobe. “The volumes and proportions are things that previously we might have found grotesque,” Jeffrey added, “but I wanted to celebrate that and apply that into a design process.” Go to our stories to see the the rest of @thurstanredding’s photographs and read @tomglitter’s interview with @_charlesjeffrey.
“From NASA-suitable workwear to the crystallisation of sweat, the Royal College of Art MA showcase is a far cry from the traditional offerings of fashion – which is just how they want it. Celebrating their 70th birthday this year, the RCA, under the lead from the head of fashion Zowie Broach, has embraced the future of design through bio-science, astrophysics, ethics and sustainability’s many interpretations.” Ahead of the @royalcollegeofart MA Fashion Show tomorrow, we spoke to five students about their perceptions of fashion, and they let us in on the best pieces of advice they’ve been given.

It’s 50 years since the seminal film Rosemary’s Baby was released. Directed by Roman Polanski and starring the brilliant Mia Farrow, it follows the story of Rosemary Woodhouse and her struggling actor husband, played by John Cassavetes. When Rosemary gets pregnant she becomes convinced an evil cult wants her baby for their rituals. The award-winning drama has been referenced time and time again on the catwalk, from Calvin Klein to Miuccia Prada, who soundtracked the @miumiu AW06 show with Rosemarys eerie lullaby.
Art School said of their show, "The suiting was bias cut this season, we’ve really pushed that technique, because it creates flexibility so that the clothes are suitable for everyone, whether that’s a trans person and their bodies are evolving, or whether it’s just a woman or a man - it doesn’t matter who it is.” Backstage at the @fashion_east MAN show we spoke to @artschool_london, @rottingdeanbazaar and @stefan_cooke.

“While much of fashion tries to understand, often totally exploiting, a world of subculture and ‘street’ style - it’s something which Rose pulls off time and time again. Why? Because she has a lived understanding of the way real Londoners dress. If this was a love letter to London, it was beautifully received.” Backstage down a Camden cul-de-sac at @martine_rose’s SS19 show.
