In the six or nine months or 12 months that it will take to rehabilitate John Galliano's post Dior reputation, what would a cynic come up with by way of damage control strategy?

Showstudio has a new intiative underway that TI really loves. In fact we're scheming to shoot a short film entry in the next few weeks when we zip through Kingston. In any case here's the info straight from the SHOWstudio blog. And how we adore this pithy little slogan on that outraged dowager's placard. Stephen Jones says the whole thing was staged. Which makes it even more genius!
Here's one to mobilise you all! Believing fashion to be political in its sheer ability to communicate, Nick Knight has conceived of a multi-level project, encouraging creatives to use the medium of fashion to convey their political beliefs, agendas and thoughts. From the beginning of December 2007, the first stage of 'Political Fashion Films' invites you to submit a film of between 30 seconds and 3 minutes that articulates some kind of political point -be it an ideological platitude or a petty grudge- using fashion. Inkeeping with previous film seasons 'Moving Fashion' Editing Fashion', in February 2008, this invitation will be opened up to a wide selection of fashion industry, art world and celebrity figures, whose Political Fashion Films will also be broadcast on the SHOWstudio website, one-per-day. The end of the project will be marked by a screening event to be held in London during Spring 2008.
