SHOWstudio have teamed up with Marks & Spencer for the exclusive preview of their A/W 2018 Holiday Collection. Last week at M&S’s PR event, SHOWstudio’s fashion illustrator Fiona Gourlay was invited to customise a new season tote in her whimsical and feminine style. The tote, with its versatile reversible design, was illustrated both inside and out and was given away to one lucky winner of the customisation challenge, using the hashtags #aw18mands and #mandsxshowstudio. To launch this exciting collaboration, Fiona led an illustration and customisation workshop with British fashion’s leading journalists and influencers and created a mural inspired by the nautical colours of the collection.
