Invitation Strictly Personal

Webb, Iain R [Curator of an exhibition] (2015) Invitation Strictly Personal. .


An exhibition in the Great Arch Hall space at Somerset House featuring a collection of items associated with the catwalk show from my personal archive. The exhibition coincided with the release of a book by the same name. Also on display were sketchbook notes and newspaper reports that I made while reporting from the collections for The Times, The Independent, The Guardian, etc. The exhibition harked back to a pre-digital age, where journalist’s notebooks and reportage of shows was the only way to see the images and gain opinions on the collections featured. The exhibition provided an intimate and fascinating insight into one journalist’s experience of attending the exclusive world of catwalk shows.
