London fashion week is in full swing with busy runway shows everywhere, from J.W. Anderson to Mulberry, and Hussein Chalayan to Topshop. Yet however rushed off your feet you are, you still need to find time to drop by Somerset House as it’s home to an exhibition (ending on March 12) on hair guru Sam McKnight and his 190 Vogue cover career journey. There you’ll find that neither on
the runways nor in the front rows can Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen, Kim Kardashian, Karlie Kloss or Uma Thurman be found in quite such stunning images as they are at the exhibition, where
they’ve been shot by the world’s most brilliant photographers, such as Patrick Demarchelier. So
before you leave the British capital, take a look at this extraordinary retrospective.
