Shoo Magazine: Summer 2003 is an international fashion publication, which featured an exclusive photo shoot by Nick Rhodes.
About the magazineEdit
Based in London, the magazine is a coffee-table publication devoted to designer shoes, bags & jewellery. The summer edition also featured articles on Heidi Klum designing for Birkenstock, Nicole Kidman's style and high heel secrets, plus Sara Doukas, who discovered Kate Moss, Edmundo Castillo, Alexandra Neel and Shizue.
This was Nick Rhodes' first major photo shoot for a magazine, which included front cover photography and a fashion layout called 'Rock Babes And Hot Shots'. The photo shoot starred Jamelia, Meredith Ostrom and Eva Rice.
For someone who posseses a collection of Vogue magazines dating back to 1912, plus a long term passion for the photographic image, it's surprising that Nick Rhodes has never got behind the camera of a magazine before. So why choose Shoo for his first major shoot? "I had time and you asked me!" said Duran Duran's blond-haired rocker who has been a keen photographer 'for as long as I can remember'. Nick chose six beautiful girls for the Girls On Film fashion story - including his girlfriend Meredith Ostrom - and fused the worlds of music and fashion. "I like unique individuals with big personalities and energy and new ideas. All these women have that", he enthuses. Shooting at the Dorchester hotel and Les Tros Garcons restaurant in London, Nick injected some unique touches of his own. See for yourself on page 74.
Meanwhile, the glam rocker is busy working with the original line-up of Duran Duran, who've just relaunched their careers with a new album and a summer tour of Japan and the US. That's not to mention his other current projects, including producing The Dandy Warhols, Monkey Me - an internet television show he's developing, plus an album with Stephen Duffy. And his other passion? "Books are my big weakness, I've collected them forever. I've got about 10,000, mainly in storage. They're on pop culture, everything from photographs to fashion."
