‘Fashion changes, but style endures.’ Coco Chanel’s famous maxim seems particularly apt when considering the centenary of British Vogue.
Just across the road from our studio is the National Portrait Gallery. We can highly recommend the VOGUE 100 exhibition on at the moment.
At the centre of this exhibition are the photographers, the century’s most talented photographers – Lee Miller, Norman Parkinson, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, David Bailey, Snowdon, Nick Knight & Mario Testino. In real life these photographs are breathtaking, stunningly beautiful & mesmeric.
From it’s origins during the First World War to it’s present-day guise in the digital era, the presonalities contained in its pages and the photographers who captured them – ranging from Marlene Dietrich by Cecil Beaton to Kate Moss by Mario Testino – are an extraordinary portrait of their age and comprise a panoramic view of the last century.
