Cecil Beaton – «Night and Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs»

2 Οκτωβρίου 2018 – 20 Ιανουαρίου 2019
Μουσείο Μόδας και Υφάσματος του Λονδίνου



Στην έκθεση, που έχει θέμα τη μόδα της δεκαετίας του 1930, περίοπτη θέση έχουν οι φωτογραφίες του Cecil Beaton (1904-1980), που, εκτός από τα θρυλικά πορτρέτα των σταρ, υπήρξε διάσημος φωτογράφος μόδας για τη Vogue, το Harper’s Bazaar και το Life.

Παρουσιάζονται μερικά από τα πιο διάσημα πορτρέτα του -μεταξύ αυτών του Σαλβαντόρ Νταλί, της Μάρλεν Ντίτριχ, της σχεδιάστριας Έλσα Σκιαπαρέλι και της Κάθριν Χέπμπορν- όπως και μία σπάνια έγχρωμη φωτογραφία του μοντέλου Μέρι Τέϊλορ.

Night and Day: 1930s Fashion & Photographs will present the over 100 of the most influential day and evening fashions ensembles of the decade, from fantasy evening wear to beach pyjamas, complemented by photographs of the stars who championed them. The 1930s ushered in the utilitarianism of World War II after the excesses of the 1920s.

Accompanying the main exhibition, the Museum’s smaller gallery will feature a selection of rare eveningwear; floor-length sequins suitable for the silver screen, accompanied by newsreel and photographs of the starlets of the time. The Main Gallery will also present a selection of portraits by pioneering photographers of the time; Paul Tanqueray, Madame Yevonde and Dorothy Wilding.


Finally, The Fashion Studio will host Cecil Beaton: Thirty from the 1930s – Fashion, Film, Fantasy. This display will comprise thirty images by the highly influential and innovative photographer, whose photographs of famous figures in fashion, film, the arts and society, including Chanel and Schiaparelli, Marlene Dietrich and Vivien Leigh, Salvador Dali and Queen Elizabeth II, helped to define the look of an era.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a learning programme which includes talks, events and workshops. For more details please see the Museum website.
