For the 2007 CFDA Awards, America’s most prestigious fashion awards ceremony, world famous fashion photographer Nick Knight was asked to make a film and shoot a photo shoot featuring the nominees for the Best Womenswear Designer category, a list that included Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and Oscar de la Renta.
On Friday 20 April before the actual awards SHOWstudio (Nick Knights own photographic company) broadcasted the making of the film from a London-based studio, starring model of the moment Agyness Deyn who wore creations from each designer’s last two seasons’ collections. The finished film was later shown on the SHOWstudio website and was featured at the CFDA awards ceremony in June that year.
It's one of my favourite films using photography, and as a fan of Nick Knight I always like his work but this one in particular I think is fantastic, his choice of model (Agyness Deyn) and the way he uses the lighting and her movents along with the shadows to show off the collections is amazing.
