Martin Parr in Fashion

As Fashion Week descended on London, The Observer New Review revisited Martin Parr‘s behind-the-scenes shots from the make-up table of a fashion show. Read about what the image represents here. Parr’s work was also referenced in a show from this February’s shows as London-based brand Mother of Pearl presented their collection inspired by British artists including David Hockney and Martin Parr. See that collection here.
