18 November 2011 – 25 February 2012
Through a series of candid photographs from top catwalk photographers, as well as clothes by internationally acclaimed designers, Catwalk to Cover provides a fascinating, behind-the scenes insight into the creative world of the fashion show. Over 100 images, alongside clothes from Prada, Lanvin, Anna Sui, Christian Lacroix, Donna Karan, Osman, Vivienne Westwood and Paco Rabanne, provide exclusive access to the different catwalk elements – front row, catwalk, backstage, the models, the editors and street style. Together these photographs provide revealing insights into the creativity, and the chaos, at the heart of the apparently glamorous fashion shows we see in the media.
The exhibition photographs are drawn from the portfolios of four photographers: Kirstin Sinclair (British Elle, Elle Collections); Matthew Lever (Elle, Redken and L’Oreal amongst others); Philip Meech (Prada and Miu Miu); and Chris Moore (over 40 years shooting catwalk shows, and founder of the picture library www.catwalking.com).
