Vogue 100: A Century of Style, celebrated 100 years of cutting-edge fashion, beauty and portrait photography by British Vogue.

Direct from the National Portrait Gallery, London, Vogue 100: A Century of Style showcased the remarkable range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916. The show brought together for the first time, over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive and international collections to tell the story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world.

Decade by decade, the exhibition explores British Vogue’s unfaltering position at the forefront of new fashion, 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.

Vogue 100: A Century of Style is a landmark exhibition in the history of magazine photography.  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. Anybody interested in photography, fashion, fame and magazines will find this an unmissable experience.
