To mark the centenary year of British Vogue in 2016, a major exhibition will open at the National Portrait Gallery, featuring fashion, beauty and portrait photography from the last 100 years.
“Anybody interested in photography, fashion, fame and magazines will find this an unmissable experience”Alexandra Shulman
Vogue 100: A Century of Style, sponsored by Leon Max, will open on February 11 and run until May 22, during which time visitors will be able to see for the first time over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive.
“I am incredibly proud of this collection of exceptional photography and of the whole concept of the exhibition, which shows the breadth and depth of the work commissioned by the magazine as well as Vogue‘s involvement in the creation of that work,” said Vogue editor in chief Alexandra Shulman this morning. “The National Portrait Gallery is a wonderful place for this show, which mixes portraiture and contemporaneous artistic style in the same way as much of the Gallery’s own collection. Anybody interested in photography, fashion, fame and magazines will find this an unmissable experience”
