The glamour and fascinating evolution of fashion photography is captured in 60 iconic images drawn from the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Featuring world famous photographers such as Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon, the touring exhibition draws on photographer Irving Penn’s comment describing his work at Vogue as ‘selling dreams, not clothes’. This is the only Australian venue for the exhibition.
