Catwalk collection at Newham College

A new exhibition at Newham College’s museum gives the public a behind-the-scenes snap-shot into working on fashion shows.

The exhibition, Catwalk to Cover, is at the Fashion and Textile Museum, in Bermondsey Street, near London Bridge, until February 25.

More than 100 photographs by Britain’s leading catwalk photographers and clothes from leading fashion houses reveal the creativity and chaos at the heart of the fashion show.

Highlights include key moments from the shows of Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.

Celebrities also make appearances including Scarlet Johansson and Florence Welch.

Head of the museum Celia Joicey said: “The work of catwalk photographers provides a fascinating cross-spectrum of creative, innovative and British approaches to documenting the world’s most celebrated shows.”
