“The truly fashionable are beyond fashion”

Cecil Beaton


June 12 – October 7, 2018

Museum Kampa introduced the British photographer Sir Cecil Beaton to the Czech public for the first time. One of the most famous British photographers of the 20th century documented the life of the British Royal Family, portrayed the key figures of the world fashion and culture world, as well as political figures from the 1930’s to the 1970’s.

Cecil Beaton also created series of portrait drawings or caricatures of his sitters. As a celebrated fashion photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, he ventured into fashion design and created costumes for films and musicals. He received three Oscars and four Tony awards for his fashion and set creations for the notorious film My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn.

The exhibition was organised with the support of the National Portrait Gallery, London. MILOSH Ltd. serviced media, PR and communication agenda of the exhibition.
