Catwalking: Fashion through the Lens of Chris Moore at Bowes Museum

Ever since I have lived in the North East of England, I have frequently visited the French château The Bowes Museum, located in Barnard Castle and renowned for its stunning grandeur and impeccable art collection. Each year it hosts an array of exhibitions to create wow and intrigue amongst its visitors, and this summer it has recently began exhibiting 'Catwalking: Fashion through the Lens of Chris Moore'. Chris Moore's selection of catwalk photography, spanning from the 1960s, is exhibited amongst The Bowes Museum's own collection of statues and paintings, as well as sitting alongside the original pieces he photographed. Capturing moments of shows, from those of Chanel to Vivienne Westwood, it is fascinating to see how taste has changed from the 'Birth of the Catwalk' in the 1970s up to this very day. Here are some of my favourites...
Vivienne Westwood's arctic boots paired with corsets that look as if they belong to the prettiest dirndl are especially fabulous - completely o.t.t. and what one's extravagant French Mademoiselle dreams are made of.
One of the most fascinating things about style, is how some styles are simply timeless. Kate Moss in Paris in 1994 could easily be anyone today, wrapping up chic and warm for the autumnal and wintery days and nights ahead.
Come to the Museum catwalk ready: you will find yourself utterly inspired by those Moore photographed from the 1960s and beyond, people of all styles and people of all ages!
 University chic anyone?!
The Museum's 'paper catwalk' displays pieces from the ‘Marilyn Warhol’ dress from Versace’s Tribute Collection to the Prada skirt suit previously modelled by Kate Moss. The photos exhibit fashion fantasies, all the more magical when scattered with an explosion of petals...
The display runs until the 6th of January 2019 - enjoy the exhibition!
