The V&A’s Collection is uprooting from London and making its way north to Wolverhampton for the first time to the Light House Gallery, where the ‘Selling Dreams: One Hundred Years of Fashion Photography’ will be on show until 13 January.
Showcasing how fashion photography has evolved and emerged over the years, in parallel with the flourishing magazine and illustration industry, the exhibition will depict the relationship between influential editors and art directors and their collaborations with photographers, in helping to shape the fashion business throughout the past century.
Injecting glamour, style and beauty, rare works will be featured from the likes of renowned photographers David Bailey and Tim Walker, fusing photography and fine art seamlessly.
A unique and exclusive opportunity, this is the first time the V&A’s Collection has gone on tour and provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these masterpieces out of their usual London surroundings. Curator Ligaya Salazar, who has curated V&A fashion exhibitions such as ‘Fashion v Sport’ and ‘Yohji Yamamoto’, will also be giving a talk at the Light House Gallery on 27 October about her selection of snaps that made the tour.
For all the Gucci, Chanel and Prada fans out there this a not-to-be-missed exhibition.
