‘Inspired by a recent exhibition of his photographs, we thought that you might enjoy a little reminder of some of the work by the great man himself, Norman Parkinson.

I am reading Grace Coddington’s biography at the moment,,  a lady of some substance within the fashion world.  She herself was a Parkinson model and has many fond memories of the work that they did together, initially as a model and subsequently as a Vogue stylist and creative director.  The book is a great insight into the small world of fashion and is especially enjoyable, when like myself, you have played some part in it!

We are following Parkinson’s photography with a modern master, David Sims by following a similar mood in colour, texture and shape, unsurprisingly the story shot by Sims is styled by the great lady herself Grace Coddington!’
