Un Rêve de Mode by Cathleen Naundorf at Hamiltons Gallery in London

Dior, Chanel, Elie Saab, Lacroix, Gaultier, Valentino. There can only be one protagonist in the timeless fashion dreams of Cathleen Naundorf, and that is Haute Couture. Cathleen launched her career in a rather unfashionable way in the German city of Weissenfels an der Saale. She studied visual design, fine art and photography in Munich in 1968 and graduated in the late 1980s.

She worked as an assistant in Paris, New York and Singapore. Her collaboration with the Süddeutschen Zeitung definitely marked an important moment in her career. Following a phase of travelling, she met her future mentor, the legendary Horst P. Horst in New York.

Light, pose, ambition and a firm belief in herself and her contribution to the world of fashion photography, all of which things the mentor bequeathed to the upcoming talent. Hence, Cathleen ended up at Jean-Paul Gaultier in Paris seven years ago where she borrowed two of his couture dresses for her photographs.

Gaultier saw her Polaroids – and the rest is history: "Un Rêve de Mode".
