Style & Splendour: Fashion Photography and Jewellery of the 1950s and 60s

This February, join us for an exhibition devoted to photographs of Dior fashion photography and jewellery of the 1950s and 60s at our London Gallery from Mon 11th to Sat 23rd Feb 2019. 
  
The exhibition displays limited edition photographic prints of Dior Fashions that Mark Shaw photographed for LIFE between 1952 and 1962, together with jewellery from the same period that will be available to purchase. 
 
As a leading fashion photographer, Shaw was one of the first to use colour when shooting the runways and backstage at the couture shows. Mark Shaw began his career in 1946 at Harper’s Bazaar and began working as a freelancer for LIFE in 1952. In his 16 years with the magazine, he shot 27 covers, and more than 100 stories which included the magazine’s annual review of the European fashion collections. In October of 2013 Rizzoli published Shaw's Dior, Glamour, which showcases these photographs.
