The O3 Gallery is delighted to be working with Oxford Fashion Week 2011 to showcase a series of photographs taken by various photographers during Oxford Fashion Week 2010. The images illustrate the pure excitement of the runway shows; from both a central and backstage perspective. The collection plays host to a variety of photographers, from young talents to well established artists. Their photographs capture the drama of the lighting, the thrill of the clothes and the splendour of the makeup. The contrast of the glamorous modern compositions with the historic interior of the O3 Gallery is a unique experience. The exhibition is set to be striking and memorable.
During this exhibition the O3 Gallery will be hosting a number of Fashion events in association with Oxford Fashion Week:
