Norman Parkinson: Elegance in Vogue

Jerry Hall, Jamaica, Vogue, 1975

The Norman Parkinson Archive and Eleven Fine Art are pleased to announce an exhibition celebrating Norman Parkinson’s influential contributions to fashion photography specifically through his work for Vogue. The exhibition has been organised to coincide with the National Portrait Gallery’s Vogue 100: A Century in Style (11th February to 22nd May 2016) where a number of Norman Parkinson’s works will be shown. 

Elegance in Vogue will present a carefully curated selection of previously unseen vintage work along with posthumous prints all of which document the transformation of fashion during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. From the luxurious silk and satin couture dresses of the 1950 Paris Collections to the sleek and sophisticated styles of the 1960s, to the romantic and delicate designs of the 1970s, Elegance in Vogue will reveal glimpses into these moments in time.

This is the second time the Norman Parkinson Archive and Eleven have joined forces, the first was the exhibition Norman Parkinson and Philip Treacy at Eleven in 2007.
