Magnum Photos, the world-renowned cooperative of photojournalists, has shared approximately 80,000 images documenting historical events, contemporary life, and notable personalities of the 20th century. These include portraits of fashion designers such as Coco Chanel, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Jeanne Lanvin, Sonia Rykiel, and Yves Saint-Laurent. The Magnum photographs may also be studied as visual documentation of changing fashion trends over the decades, whether the iconic style of figures like Jacqueline Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn, or everyday casual attire. Magnum photographers also provide coverage of contemporary fashion with selected runway shows during recent fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, and New York. These photographs capture designers and models, both on the catwalk and behind the scenes.
