Catherine Griffiths on another link between fashion and photography.
As a graphic designer in the late 1980s, working my career in London, I used my first ‘real’ camera, a Ricoh SLR, to take fashion snaps that pitched fellow designer Fiona Fry and me into a ‘Best Dressed Designer Awards’ feature in Design Week (December 1990), writes Catherine Griffiths.
