British Fashion Awards Honour Chris Moore

News of another stellar addition to next weeks British Fashion Awards roll call of honourees has sent us a little soft this morning. Legendary lensman Chris Moore- who is set to be presented with the Special Recognition Award for his remarkable six decade spanning career on Monday, holds a rather special place in our hearts. Having shaped our perspective on the fashion world with runway reportage- from it’s days as a niche exercise, to the continued success of essential industry tool, we can’t help but wonder where exactly we’d all be without his steadfast photographic insight? As Suzy Menkes puts it- obviously rather eloquently, ‘his archive is a history of fashion from Yves Saint Laurent to Cara Delevingne – with anyone in between who mattered in the fashion universe. Chris has been in at the beginning of everything and everyone. His camera nestles in a telescope box which has become his signature and his logo. I have worked with him for 25 years – and I salute him.’ Mr. Moore- we’re very much looking forward to offering you our own salute come the big night, via raised glasses-naturally.
