I manage the Fashion/Beauty and Retail strand and let me tell you, yer all in for a real treat with what we’ve got coming for you – no matter what your intae! My favourite event so far? Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast at the Edinburgh City Art Centre.

These kinds of (fashion) opportunities do not come to Scotland often enough so when I heard about Edinburgh’s City Art Centre adding to the exhibition with a whole programme of events, I knew we needed to get involved!

Launching on the 15th of June and open until 8th of September, the exhibition shows early work by such photographers as Cecil Beaton, Erwin Blumenfeld, Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Corinne Day, Mario Testino and Sølve Sundsbø as it appeared in the pages of VogueTatler and other Condé Nast publications.

We all need to give virtual thanks to the exhibition curator Nathalie Herschdorfer, who had unprecedented access to the Condé Nast archives in New York, Paris, London and Milan and hand picked work of over eighty photographers and editors notes from over the past 100 years for the display.
