Gallery: Designer Monographs

published on 6 October 2016

Designer Monographs highlights Nick Knight's long-term collaborations with remarkable fashion designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Martine Sitbon, and Jil Sander, which all boldly challenged the universal view in the fashion world, at the time of their creation, of women as objects of commercialisation. His extraordinary insight in concentrating on the pure expression of garment, rather than on models of other derivative components, while also working with avant-garde contemporary designers, had a major role in the changing of cross-processing* a method of treating film to produce colour inversion that dramatically highlights colour contrasts, Nick Knight established his own groundbreaking style of fashion imagery.
