A healthy dose of voyeurism is essential to the human condition, whether this is when you’re sat outside a cafe people watching, or peeking into someone else’s home on Location, Location, Location. In fashion terms this comes from backstage videos from fashion shows, personal style blogs and a sprinkling of celebrity front row gossip.
A sense of curiosity (and finally finishing my copy of The ST Style’s Big Fashion Issue) lead me to the fantastic fashion photography blog, Show Me Your Wardrobe, by the photographer and stylist Jackie Dixon, that comes with the tag-line ‘a sneaky peek into the wardrobes of today’s creative talent’. Dixon worked on the shoots involving Style’s Natalie Hartley in The Big Fashion Issue, see below.
Started in 2008, SMYW quickly rose in popularity within the fashion industry, leading to regular features in British Elle and The Sunday Times Style magazine. Dixon has photographed numerous fashion insiders, writers, actors and musicians including Skin (of Skunk Anansie fame), model Georgia Frost and fashion journalist Angela Buttolph.
Regardless of where the images are taken (in front of a brick wall, inside an office cubicle or fashion closet), the result is fun, playful look at what the movers and shakers of the industry are wearing and seeing who will crop up on Dixon’s blog next is equally exciting.
