Catwalk to Cover. A Front Row Seat.
Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre
26 Nov 2016 to 12 Feb 2017
Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre is bringing The London Fashion Museum to New Zealand. Through a series of candid photographs from top catwalk photographers – Kirstin Sinclair, Chris Moore, Matt Lever and Philip Meech – and clothes by internationally acclaimed designers, Catwalk to Cover provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into the creative world of the fashion shows of London, Paris, Milan and New York. The exhibition features over 100 images, alongside clothes from leading New Zealand designers and provides exclusive access to the different catwalk elements – front row, catwalk, backstage, the models, the editors and street style. Together these photographs provide revealing insights into the creativity, and the chaos, at the heart of the apparently glamorous fashion shows we see online, on television, in the newspapers and in magazines.
