John French was a well known fashion photographer in London during the 1950-60s. He was once described as "the man who brought a new glamour to fashion photography". The following images come from a book printed at the time of a Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition held in 1984. The book is long out of print and unavailable through the V&A Museum website. The images date from between 1948 and 1965.

Beautiful clothes, beautifully shot. It's also really interesting to see how well dressed he is, always. Something you'd not get from a modern day photographer, or many people for that matter.

^ Very true. How many professional photographers would wear a coat and tie for shoot these days? Probably none.
