Chris Moore | Bowes Museum

We were lucky enough to bag a ticket to the major new exhibition, CATWALKING: Fashion through the Lens of Chris Moore at The Bowes Museum in Teesdale.

The show presented original fashion photographs by Chris Moore, the undisputed king of catwalk photography. Having been at the forefront of fashion for six decades, he has, and still is, capturing the most iconic catwalk moments in fashion history.

Moore handpicked 200 original photographs from his extensive archive, and the world's leading fashion houses loaned the Museum a selection of original catwalk outfits as seen in the accompanying photographs in a unique collaboration.

Joanna Hashagen, Curator of Fashion and Textiles at The Bowes Museum, said: “Chris Moore is the eye that shows the catwalk to the world.  Our exhibition charts the evolution of fashion in displaying clothes and accessories by the top designers that are captured in Chris’s photographs -   Vivienne Westwood, Prada, Comme des Garҫons, Giles Deacon and Jean Paul Gaultier, to name just a few! I’m excited and honoured to be working with Chris Moore and Alex Fury, as The Bowes Museum becomes home to an exclusive fashion exhibition once again.”
