Lilian Bassman and Chanel

Lilian Bassman : The iconic fashion photographer ! 




So simple, timeless and elegant Chanel black crossbody.

We definitively love Chanel ! 
Now, we thought it was important to mention Lilian Bassman for all the fashion lovers you are, even if she is less famous than Louise Dahl-wolfe ! 
She is the photographer of this Chanel advertising campaign, New York, 1958 of the picture above.

 


The internationally acclaimed fashion photographer Lilian Bassman, is the one who took black and white photos and colorful postcards featuring elegant women dressed up for the covers of Vogue Magazines ! She worked as a fashion photographer and then as an Art Director for Harper's Bazaar from 1950 to 1965, where she promoted the careers of photographers such as Richard Avedon, who we are going to speak later





Harper’s Bazaar, New York, c. 1957 and  November, 1954.
 
Lilian Bassman, June 15, 1917 – February 13, 2012.
