London’s National Portrait Gallery hosts a splendid exhibition to mark the Centenary of British Vogue, known affectionately in-house as ‘Brogue’. Thoughtfully curated by Robin Muir and imaginatively designed by Patrick Kinmonth, this is an exhibition to delight the general public and to thrill the fashion aficionado.

Vogue has always been more than a fashion magazine, serving rather as a multi-faceted mirror of society.
