Best known for his photographs of women and fashion, Horst P. Horst was one of the master photographers of the 20th Century. In a distinguished sixty-year career working between Paris and New York, the German American’s photographs graced Vogue and magazines such as House and Garden.

Now thanks to the Victoria and Albert Museum and travel partner American Airlines, the definitive Horst collection, exhibiting everything from haute couture to still life, has come to London. Having recently visited the exhibition, this is a must for those interested in fashion and photography.

The, exhibition, Horst Photographer of Style, runs until 4 January 2015. For tickets and more information visit the V&A website.
