This exhibition will chart how fashion photography flourished with the rise of illustrated magazines and how influential editors and art directors collaborated with photographers to shape epochs of style throughout the past century. Exposing the medium's evolution and the fascinating dialogue between fashion photography and fine art photography, this exhibition is beautiful and scholarly, glamorous and insightful. The V&A is home to the UK's National Collection of the Art of Photography. The Collection comprises over half a million works including many hundreds of fashion photographs. This is the first touring exhibition from the V&A's Collection to explore the work of international fashion photographers and to draw together such a broad range of important historic and contemporary fashion images. This exhibition will be unveiled to the region for the very first time at Light House, as part of a UK tour.
