Kate Moss by Corinne Day

Day is renowned for her original and unique fashion and documentary photography. In August 2010, after her death, Belinda White wrote in The Daily Telegraph: “Corinne Day opened the door for a whole new generation of photographers, designers, models and stylists who suddenly saw that the fashion industry didn’t have to be this exclusive club for the privileged and perfect.”

A retrospective of Day’s work is being unveiled today in London to coincide with the launch of London Fashion week.
