Durham’s Bowes Museum plans to mount an exhibit featuring original fashion photographs by Chris Moore, the renowned catwalk photographer.
The exhibition opens on 7th July 2018 and runs until 6th January 2019.
Born in Newcastle
Chris Moore was born in Newcastle and started his career aged 20 working at Vogue Studio in London. Chris assisted photographers including Henry Clarke and Cecil Beaton. By the late 1960s Chris was working with designers such as Paco Rabanne, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent.
200 Original Photographs
The exhibition is entitled ‘Catwalking: Fashion Through the Lens of Chris Moore.’
It will feature 200 original photographs chosen by Moore from his archive. There will be images from key moments at legendary fashion shows including those at Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior, John Galliano, Comme des Garҫons, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Vivienne Westwood.
And to add to the unique event, there will be a selection of original catwalk outfits lent to the Museum by the world’s leading fashion houses.
The TTM team will be taking a look at some point. Unmissable!
