Pioneers of Fashion: The Fashion Photography of Lee Miller & Illustration of Carl Erickson

21 to 25 February 2024 at Cromwell Place, London

‘Pioneers of Fashion’ examines the artistic mediums of fashion photography and fashion illustration through the prism of the twentieth century American fashion pioneers – legendary photographer Lee Miller (1907 -1977) and visionary artist Carl Erickson (1891 -1958).
Presented by The Lee Miller Archives and Gray M.C.A Gallery, this first of its kind exhibition examines the similarities, the complexities and the differences of working with lens and brush respectively and the relationship the two mediums have as they complement each other in documenting fashion to audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Both artists, beloved by Condé Nast’s Vogue magazine from the 1920s through to the late 40s and beyond were considered consummate masters of their chosen fields. Together they forged new trajectories, revolutionising the interpretation of fashion in the interwar years. ‘Pioneers of Fashion’ salutes each artist and celebrates their vital contribution to the history and evolution of twentieth century fashion.
