Chris Moore - catwalking exhibition at the Bowes Museum

Visitors to the Bowes Museum this summer can travel through 50 years of catwalk fashion history, from the swinging sixties to the rise of the 90s supermodel and the new era of the 2000s at Catwalking – Fashion through the lens of Chris Moore.

Chris Moore has been shooting the world’s biggest fashion shows for over 50 years and his unique photographic archive charts the evolution of fashion from the 1960s to the present day, documenting the fascinating world of designers, supermodels and the evolution of the catwalk itself.
