From the SHOWStudio newsletter: What do you get when you marry music and fashion? Madonna's Gaultier torpedo bra? Perhaps velvety-voiced Nico as perfect accessory to Sixties shifts? Next week will offer more answers than you can shake a (rhythm) stick at, as SHOWstudio and Swarovski present 'Fashion DJs': a three-day event celebrating the fusion of music and fashion, featuring a welter of fashion luminaries from Naomi Campbell to Stephen Jones, Gareth Pugh to Giles Deacon. From midday to midnight on the 9th, 10th and 11th July, each guest gets the chance to play DJ, decamping to the legendary Abbey Road Studios to spin a musical set of their own devising, accompanied by live music and art performances. Guaranteeing a visual as well as audio feast, Nick Knight will be filming proceedings. Of course, all will be broadcast live on SHOWstudio.com, swarovskisparkles.tv and via radio for London listeners on 87.7FM.
