Information

Webber Gallery are delighted to announce a solo exhibition of previously unseen photographs of Vivienne Westwood's 1994 S/S Café Society Show in Paris by Webber photographer Steve Harries. The exhibition, taking place over 2016's London Fashion Week, will include vintage, hand made, bromide prints offering a behind the scenes glance of models including Kate Moss, Helena Christensen, Nadja Auermann and Vivienne Westwood herself.

Steve, only 21 at the time and a student at Central St. Martins, was appointed the role of assistant to long term-friend and fellow photographer Gavin Bond. Both were given a rare chance to record what was to be one of the most iconic British fashion shows of our time. The collection was created during a period in which Vivienne Westwood was exploring 19th Century France and featured clothing inspired by the paintings of 17th Century artist Van Dyck, the show also paid homage to the couturier Charles Worth, the British designer who dominated French fashion at the end of the 19th Century.
