I flew back from London this weekend and, at the airport, picked up the new issue of the U.K. magazine Dazed and Confused. It’s typically full of interesting and very of-the-moment stuff, including a piece about photographer Nick Knight and his Showstudio, a website intending to bring the “‘tech hippie’ world of the internet into fashion,” according to the magazine’s Lauren Cochrane.

Through December Showstudio is presenting on its site “Moving Fashion,” a commissioned series of very short films — 30 seconds or so — by leading names in the fashion world. The films all incorporate items from the Autumn/Winter ’05/’06 collections, and the site also features a blog and forum in which the mostly fanciful and charmingly tossed-off shorts are discussed.

The shorts change each week; if you click today, you’ll see films by designer John Galliano, model and White Stripe wife Karen Elson, and Kate Moss, who dances — yes, topless — in her film to the Ramones’ “Sheena is a Punk Rocker.”

And re the title of this post… hey, gimme a break. One has to boost search engine traffic somehow.
