If you haven’t seen the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, don’t delay. (It ends on May 22nd). It is a wonderful celebration of a century of fashion photography and illustration, full of many images you will recognise as well as plenty to discover. It also, of course, being Vogue, tells the story of the movers and shakers over the last century, not just in fashion but in art and culture too. We raved about it here.
Whether you’ve seen the show or not, we highly recommend booking tickets for an evening talk on 14th April at 7pm (you could see the exhibition before), with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman. Shulman was hugely involved in every aspect of the exhibition and has edited the magazine since 1992, so she knows the subject of the talk – the story of Vogue over the last 100 years – inside out. But as well as being hugely insightful, she’s also, we can attest from working with her, funny, irreverent and frank. She’ll be ‘in conversation’ with the Financial Times’s fashion editor Jo Ellison, who used to work with her too (Ellison was features director of British Vogue before joining the FT in 2014), and who will absolutely engage her in all the right ways. Do book tickets now.
