About the exhibition..
The exhibition will be open to the public on February 11 – Mai 22. The aim of the exhibition is to show the range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916. Alexandra Shulman had expressed the point that she did not want the exhibition to be just some black-framed pictures hanging on the walls. Vogue 100 is a great opportunity to bring together many great photographers, models and editors. By visiting this exhibition, someone is able to travel through the times and view the history of the greatest fashion magazine ever created and realize why it was always one step ahead the other competitors. The images are well chosen and there are images of Kate Moss and Marlene Dietrich as well as war photography.
