Selling Dreams: One Hundred Years of Fashion Photography is the new exhibition slated to show at the Light House Media Centre as the first touring exhibition from the Victoria & Albert’s Collection. It will portray the rise and significance of fashion photography through illustrated magazines.

The Victoria & Albert Museum UK’s National Collection of the Art of Photography is composed of a vast half million works. This includes the hundreds of fashion photographs, which will be unveiled for this Selling Dreams UK tour. First stop: Light House.
