100 Years in Vogue

There’s an exhibition on at Manchester Art Gallery showcasing some of the greatest photography in the world, called 100 Years in Vogue.


If you like photography – you’ll love it.

If you like fashion – you’ll love it.

If you’re an art director – you’ll love it.

If you’re a graphic designer – you’ll love it.

If you’re a fashion designer – you’ll love it.

If you’re a textile designer – you’ll love it.

If you’re a magazine/layout designer – you’ll love it.

If you’re an illustrator – you’ll love it.

If you like art – you’ll love it.


I’m not really into fashion, (no shit, Sherlock), so I guess it appealed to the art director in me.


“The exhibition brings together vintage prints from the early twentieth century, ground-breaking photographs from renowned fashion shoots, unpublished work and original magazines. Images by leading twentieth-century photographers, including Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, Irving Penn and Snowdon will feature alongside more recent work by David Bailey, Corinne Day, Patrick Demarchelier, Nick Knight, Herb Ritts and Mario Testino.”


But you’d best get your skates on, it finishes on the 30th October!

(Oh, and it’s free in.)

  1. My mother used to take Vogue, as well as Harpers & Queen. She kept them in the bathroom, so I used to enjoy reading them while sitting on the toilet, thinking to myself that I would be glamorous like the women in the pictures when I grew up, so that I’d marry a film star who looked like Terence Stamp or Steve McQueen. Of course, I never was glamorous, but it was good to dream.

  2. Wonderful photos from the past, full of style and outrageous costumes.
