Kirstin Sinclair How an exhibition can change your life
“After six years of freelance assisting I joined a team working at the big catwalk shows shooting front row and street style, which is when I started making really important connections within the fashion industry. This led to more prestigious commissions and I eventually no longer needed to assist. Then, in 2011 I helped curate and took part in an exhibition called ‘Catwalk to Cover’ at The Fashion and Textiles Museum in London. This really helped get me noticed within the industry and taken much more seriously.
“The Museum, already a client of mine, offered me the exhibition opportunity after seeing my work from the catwalk shows and then kindly recommended me to publishing company ACC Editions. This lead to the publication of my first book, A Front Row Seat, written by myself and specifically dedicated to eight years of my photographs from the catwalk shows in New York, Milan, Paris and London.”
