Vogue 100 – A Century of Style: New Exhibition for 2016

18 November 2015
Metro is thrilled to be working with the National Portrait Gallery on Vogue 100: A Century of Style, a major exhibition celebrating 100 years of cutting‐edge fashion, beauty and portrait photography by British Vogue, which will open at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in February 2016. Metro will be producing a number of the modern prints and providing some of the framing for the exhibition.

Showcasing over 280 iconic images from the Conde Nast archive and international collections the exhibition will celebrate the vast range of photography commissioned by one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world since its launch in 1916.

Featuring work by many of the leading twentieth-century photographers, including Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, Irving Penn and Snowdon alongside more recent work by photographers David Bailey, Nick Knight, Mario Testino, Tim Walker to name a few, ‘Vogue 100: A Century of Style’ highlights the magazine’s dedication to commissioning world-class photography as well as its role in nurturing new talent.

The exhibition will explore, decade by decade, the magazine’s unfaltering position at the forefront of new fashion.  Celebrating its dedication to the best in design and its influence on the UK’s wider cultural stage during some of the most inventive and exciting periods in style, taste, the arts and society.

Images of many faces responsible for shaping the cultural landscape of the twentieth century will be on view, from Henri Matisse to Francis Bacon; Lucian Freud and Damien Hirst; Marlene Dietrich to Gwyneth Paltrow; Lady Diana Cooper to Lady Diana Spencer and Fred Astaire to David Beckham.

Exhibition highlights will also feature Corinne Day’s controversial Kate Moss underwear shoot, taken in 1993; Peter Lindbergh’s famous 1990 cover shot that defined the supermodel era; a series of exceptional Second World War photographs by Vogue’s official war correspondent, Lee Miller; a rare version of Horst’s famous ‘corset’ photograph from 1939 and vintage prints by the first professional fashion photographer, Baron de Meyer

Curated by Robin Muir, a Contributing Editor to British Vogue and designed by opera set designer Patrick Kinmonth, the exhibition is set to be an immersive and imaginative journey through the greatest moments in the history of British Vogue.
