Arrowsmith: Fashion, Beauty & Portraits
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
With a career spanning five decades, Clive Arrowsmith is one of the most entertaining British photographers and directors you will ever have the pleasure to encounter. Join us for a special evening to hear Clive tell the stories behind the scenes of his most famous fashion and portrait shoots, followed by an event celebrating the first-ever book to document his work.
Born holding a camera and paint brush, Arrowsmith has produced some of the most imaginative images of 20th century fashion. Grace Coddington writes, ‘Clive could always come up with a psychedelic vision to suit the current mood of far-out fantasy in fashion. In one sitting, he was able to capture not only the romance of a Dior coat but the futurism of Pierre Cardin.’ Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue.
