The highly anticipated Vogue 100: A Century of Style, exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery opens this week celebrating 100 years of cutting edge fashion, beauty and portrait photography by British Vogue.
Showcasing over 280 iconic images from the Condé Nast Archive and international collections the exhibition celebrates the vast range of photography commissioned by one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world since its launch in 1916.
Metro has been working closely with the Gallery’s curators and Project Team from the early stages of production of a large number of the modern exhibition prints. Production has been extensive and we are thrilled to have printed C-Type, Giclée and fibre based black and white images, produced LED lightboxes, as well as mounting and framing a large number of the modern prints – resulting in one of the most comprehensive exhibitions Metro has recently worked on.
Steve Macleod, Metro’s Director comments, “With nearly forty years experience and an unrivalled reputation for quality of service, Metro Imaging could confidently undertake such an important and seminal exhibition as Vogue 100.
“Through relationships developed over years with both the National Portrait Gallery and many of the contributing photographers, Metro has utilised all of its services – some unique to the company, to help produce what will be culturally one of the most important exhibitions in the UK this year.”
Curated by Robin Muir, a Contributing Editor to British Vogue and designed by designer Patrick Kinmonth, the exhibition is set to be an immersive and imaginative journey through the greatest moments in the history of British Vogue.
