Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast

Immerse yourself in the world of fashion photography. Head over to Edinburgh to visit the exhibition Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast. This exhibition is not only a must see for every fashionista but also for the photography lover.

It showcases some gorgeous fashion photography, as it appeared in the pages of the Condé Nast magazines – most notably Vogue and Glamour. Work of some of the biggest names in the history of fashion photography is displayed, think of David Bailey, Deborah Turbeville, Guy Bourdin, Mario Testino and Corinne Day. The work of over eighty photographers can be seen, so one can truly say it’s fashion photography heaven.

While there snap up the book, Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast. It would make a great present for a fellow fashionista.

The exhibition is part of the Edinburgh Art Festival and has been organised by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/Paris/Lausanne, in collaboration with the City Art Centre, Edinburgh.

It’s being held at the Edinburgh City Art Centre and opens today, 15 June 2013 (ends 8 September 2013). As this is your only chance to see this exhibition in the UK, make sure you don’t miss this great opportunity!
