When we think of runway imagery, we often think of the late, great Style.com. But it seems that photographer Chris Moore was a master of catwalk photography long before the now-defunct Condé Nast website first hit the scene. In fact, Chris Moore has been shooting on the runway since the 1950s, when he worked as a photo assistant at Vogue. Some years later, in 1999, he went on to establish Catwalking – which became the first online archive of runway photography. And so to celebrate his iconic work, fashion journalist Alexander Fury has recently released a legacy book called Catwalking: Photographs by Chris Moore.

The tome reportedly features iconic moments such as John Galliano’s graduate collection, Alexander McQueen’s SS10 Plato’s Atlantis collection and the iconic, supermodel-laden finale to Versace’s AW91 show. In addition to these history-making moments, the book includes interviews and essays by Fury, which delve a little deeper into the renowned photographers moments.

Charting more than 60 years of runway fashion, this book offers a compelling insight into how things have developed over time. And into Chris Moore’s unparalleled dedication to his craft – he reportedly still attends the occasional fashion show to this day. Although Moore told the Financial Times earlier this year he would be retiring, this book means he can go out with a bang – and it allows us to relive his best moments in the process.
