Explore the rich and varied history of fashion photography at the latest exhibit to hit Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. "Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography” will present more than 200 photographs by famous practitioners and lesser-known, yet influential, artists. On the whole, the exhibit will present a broad and diverse perspective on fashion photography and its trajectory from niche industry to powerful cultural force. Don’t miss the show’s opening day this Sunday, June 23rd!
"Icons of Style" showcases a broad and diverse view of fashion and fashion photography – from elegant portraits made in the early 20th century; to the trendsetting fashions of Beyoncé, David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Jones, Run DMC, and Salt-N-Pepa; to images that have graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Ebony, and Essence.
The exhibition not only chronicles trends in fashion over the past century, but also reflects broader cultural shifts. From aristocrats, to street style, to supermodels and globalism, fashion photography often defines the ways people see themselves. Icons of Style brings together local, national, and international loans, augmented with works from the MFAH collections.
