Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast

A major exhibition Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast is coming to the Gold Coast this summer. The exhibition celebrates some of the most iconic images from the past century of fashion as the publisher of Vogue, Vanity Fair and Glamour opens up its photography archive to the public.

Glamorous, provocative, beautiful, accomplished and magical – fashion imagery has always been associated with some of the most famous names in the history of photography. Spanning across the past 100 years, the exhibition includes images by Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and Mario Testino.

Produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography (based in the United States and Europe) the exhibition also looks at early work by luminaries such as Horst P. Horst, Erwin Blumenfeld, David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Corinne Day, Deborah Turbeville and Sølve Sundsbø.

The collection of images, selected by photography curator Nathalie Herschdorfer, show the sharp contrast in the first fashion photographs from the early 20th century compared to the modern day.

LOCATION: The Arts Centre, 135 Bundall Rd, Bundall
COST: Adults $12, Concession $10, Students $10, Children under 12 free
