From the gallery:
The Mass is pleased to present a SHOWstudio takeover.
Kate Moss is one of SHOWstudio’s most prolific and valued contributors. The Mass will introduce some of her many collaborations with Nick Knight and SHOWstudio, including early works from 2000 (the year SHOWstudio began) and her more modern and contemporary projects with Knight, showcasing Moss’ ability to surprise and transform before the camera. To celebrate her magnetism on the runway, as well as on the screen, thirty of the world’s best fashion illustrators interpreted her most iconic catwalk looks, each hand selected by Kate Moss.
Kate Moss says: ‘It was such a pleasure to have the chance to look back on the incredible clothes I have worn on the catwalks and to see how these have inspired SHOWstudio’s amazing selection of fashion illustrators – it brings back many memories and feels like a fitting tribute to the wonderful designers I have worked with.’
Nick Knight says: ‘I asked 30 of the world’s best fashion illustrators to draw Kate’s most iconic catwalk looks, all chosen specially by her, for the amazing designers she has worked with including McQueen, Galliano and Westwood. The result is a uniquely beautiful exhibition that shows the many exciting ways each artists sees the model who has come to symbolise what fashion means for a whole generation and someone who has been a consistent inspiration for me over the many times she and I have worked together. Fashion Illustration is one of the most artistic mediums to portray fashion and I am thrilled to bring this show to The Mass, one of Tokyo’s most exciting new galleries.’
