Winner of the Grand Prix ASVOFF Barcelona 2012 for Best Film for Ephemeral Nature, Gsus was recently commissioned to produce ‘It Melts,’ a film to launch Pigeons & Peacocks Issue 6.
I chose to study my BA in Fashion Media at London College of Fashion part time because I was supporting myself financially, so this meant I could continue paying my rent and tuition fees. I worked as a receptionist in a bank for a few months then in an office role for three years.
I was determined to make a change in my life and it gave me hope to know that at the end of the day I could hopefully find a job that was more creative. In my second year I focused on my studies in creative media and my teacher encouraged me to try working with film instead of photography. I worked in an office Monday to Wednesday each week so that from Thursday to Sunday I could concentrate on my university work and be creative.
The ‘It Melts’ video was my third film, but the first one I was paid to create. The LCF magazinePigeons & Peacocks commissioned the film and did open casting for the main role. We had to work hard to get permission to shoot in the locations around London and the result is a collaboration of me and a cinematographer, editor and camera operative. There’s a bit more about my work on my Showtime profile.
I finished the film during my summer break and we’re submitting it to festivals now, such as the Berlin Fashion Film Festival while I’m focusing on my final project, which will be another short film titled ‘Out’. There will be a final group show for the course in June.
The good thing about taking the part time course at London College of Fashion is that every day I was working in a corporate environment I felt I was working towards the days when I could get creative and do the thing that makes me happy. Only time will tell how successful it’s going to be.
My work has now been seen in publications in Italy, Spain, the U.S. and the UK and I’ve now been picked up to work for a Madrid-based creative agency after the course, so I’m excited for the future.

The award-winning filmmaker created ‘It Melts‘ for Issue six of Pigeons and Peacocks, and is now seeking to tackle his biggest project yet by telling the dramatic and sometimes comic story of a young man coming out as gay to his mother.



"It would be fair to say that here at Pigeons & Peacocks magazine we love award winning film-maker and current London College of Fashion student Gsus Lopez. Discovering his amazing short film Ephemeral Nature, we immediately fell in love with his style, immediately adored his vision and immediately wanted to work with him. For the launch of issue 6 of the magazine, we commissioned Lopez to create a film for us – and the man did not disappoint. It Melts, a delectable and stylish exploration of fashion addiction and consumption, was a feast for the eyes; a triumph.
Lopez returns with his fourth film Out, telling the story of single mother Mary and her closet-emerging homosexual son – and this time, Lopez wants your help. Tackling his biggest project yet, Lopez needs financial backing and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. Head on over to Gsus Lopez’s Kickstarter page to make a pledge and support this talented and visionary film-maker!

PARIS DIARY

Here are a few photos of my latest trip to Paris courtesy of COFRAD, a mannequin manufacturer company which has chosen a small group of students of London College of Fashion in which I am lucky to be included to organise a small collaboration event / exhibition to be held next October in their showroom on 12 Rue Vauvilliers. After the meeting I had time to re explore one of my favorite cities (I used to draw the Eiffel Tower while dreaming with being a bohemian painter when I was little even before I had been there…) and catch up with a few friends before catching the Eurostar back to London the day after.

Thank you Stephane for your hospitality and allowing me to enjoy the stunning views from the private terrace in the Penthouse Suite at Le Meurice Hotel **** …

I also had time to catch up with my friend Akiko, who I met during ASVOFF Barcelona and had not seen her since. She first showed me her little office and showroom as she works for PAS DE CALAIS now. Have a look at some photos I took below or click on the brand’s name above to find out more about them.

And then we walked around Le Marais area, which is full of lovely bars and restaurants (I highly recommend this neighbourhood, it reminded me very much to Gracia in Barcelona).

We went for dinner to a traditional bistrot style French restaurant called Chez Nénesse on 17 Rue de Saintonge (+33 1 42 78 46 49). Delicious!

Here’s my latest creation (branding, logo design and photography) for the very last project at London College of Fashion before I move on to the final one + dissertation. Yes, it has already been three years since I started. Time flies!

LUBNA' is a 20 something year old Fashion Design student at LCF too who also happens to be an artist mastering the technique of oil on canvas (soon to have her own profile on 'Saatchi Online’. This translates in her, being able to create unique prints… Something on which she will probably concentrate more in the future. So far she has been an intern at Alexander McQueen for a few months and one of her prints made it to the final menswear collection of McQ AW13 (an incredible suit!).

Please check out the blog I have created for her and start following her on twitter because she’s going to be big!

CORDWAINERS WORKSHOP @ London College of Fashion

Cordwainers College was founded as a leather trade school in Bethnal Green, East London in 1887. It merged with London College of Fashion in 2000.

A cordwainer’s workshop has been recreated at LCF (John Princess St - Oxford Circus) to reference the hand-making techniques and crafts inherent in the production of leatherwear.

‘Les Mains d’Hermès' is a documentary film directed by Frédéric Laffont and Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat, about the making of the leather goods and scarves of the French maison Hermès.

We were really lucky to have it premiered in the UK at London College of Fashion, with a little introduction by Almudena, a lovely Spanish lady who is their PR in the United Kingdom.

Every piece has a story to tell, and craftsman behind it… There’s so much time and effort and love put into each of their goods that… no wonder why the cost so much and there’s a waiting list (especially with the famous Birkin bag).

Something that left me speechless was, one of the ladies in the documentary who spends a minimum of 1,500 to 2,000 hours on each drawing for the scarves… And that’s without counting all the previous time she spends researching…

They will be back at LCF to screen it again after Christmas so if you are around; don’t miss it!
