WHAT:

Author and editor-in-chief of British Harper’s Bazaar, Justine Picardie, reflects on photographer Richard Avedon’s iconic images of Dior fashions and portraits from the 1940’s through to 70’s. With an eye for moments of grace and humour, Avedon captured the essence of Dior’s elegant designs and the women who wore them. Justine, in conversation with writer and journalist Gianluca Longo, will tell the story of Avedon’s relationship with the French fashion house accompanied by incredible images by the photographer.

Includes wine reception.
