Vogue – A Century of Style

Visits, Visits and Talks, Visual Research and Inspiration

So recently I visited the National Portrait Gallery to see an exhibition I’ve been really excited about. Vogue – A Century of Style. Growing up I remember sneaking a look at my mum or my aunts copy of Vogue Magazine. Ive always loved the photography and amazing fashion, although I’ve never really followed fashion myself. The Exhibition was divided into decades of fashion, photography and illustration, starting in 1916 when vogue was founded. One of my favourite photographs is the larger than life portrait of Alexander McQueen taken by Tim Walker (photo below)
Alexander McQueenA Century of Style showcases the remarkable range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue, over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive and international collections being shown together for the first time to tell the story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world. Check out the National Portrait Galleries website here! the exhibition ends on the 22nd of May!

I couldn’t help grabbing a collection of postcards as I left, Gift shops are my weakness!
