"…creating a collection does not end by the clothing itself, it finds expression in all aspects around us. It represents a spirit of age that can be expressed in different disciplines.

Born in 1919, Frances McLaughlin-Gill became a fashion photographer and producer of television commercials. She studied at the Pratt Institure during the Depression and she was a staff photographer for Conde Nast publications 1944-1955 and went on to produce television commercials between 1964-1973. Frances built a successful career beginning in the 1940s at Vogue and she was the first woman under contract to VogueShe posed some models but some of her work has a real quality of somebody caught in a beautiful moment. She was able to capture a sensuality of her subjects which was very different at the time, as other fashion photographers models were very posed.One of Frances’ enduring abilities was to develop empathy for models in their work and foster real friendships.

Something about this image seems so surreal to me. It’s beautiful.
