Fashion’s Front Line: Fashion Show Photography from the Runway to Backstage
Before the live streaming of international fashion shows and the instant publication of runway images online, the collections were strictly ‘invitation only’. It was once the photographer, runway’s unsung hero, who allowed us a glimpse of an exclusive and fascinating spectacle.
A visual journey through three decades of photographing runway shows in Paris, Milan, London and New York, Fashion’s Front Line showcases dazzling images taken by long-serving catwalk photographer Niall McInerney, whose life’s work has been painstakingly preserved and made to be had through Bloomsbury Publishing’s Fashion Photography Archive. Giving readers your complete picture, the book captures many rare and never-before-seen images of iconic moments at the runway in addition to famous faces at the front row and the buzzing atmosphere behind the curtain.
With statement from the photographer himself, in addition to interviews with top international fashion insiders, Fashion’s Front Line is a unique window onto the world of late 20th-century fashion. As good as a front row ticket, this book will probably be a should-have for fashion lovers.
