Horst P. Horst exhibition at the V&A

American Vogue cover, July 1939

Before the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition comes to the V&A next year - there's another show I can't wait to see. The Horst P. Horst retrospective opening at the museum in September celebrates one of the 20th century's most iconic photographers. From Mainbocher to American Vogue, the German-born photographer worked with all the big couturiers and fashion magazines in a career that spanned six decades. Exciting.
