Fashion buffs, get excited, because Auckland Museum is now showing the wonderful V&A exhibition 'Selling Dreams: One Hundred Years Of Fashion Photography'.

The straight-from-London show features original work from some - nay, most - of the 20th century's major fashion snappers, including Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and David Bailey, alongside contemporary images by Miles Aldridge, Corinne Day, Rankin, and Tim Walker. 

Explore the above gallery for a sneak peek at some of the collection's most magical snaps. 

The exhibition runs until 28 February 2014 in the Special Exhibitions Hall. Tickets for adults are $8 (weekdays) and $10 (weekends), seniors $6 (weekdays) and $8 (weekends). Entry for groups of ten or more is priced at $6 per person. Children, students, and Auckland Museum Institute / Circle Members can attend the exhibition free.

There is also a series of Smart Talks beginning every Wednesday (6-9pm) as of next week, featuring V&A Selling Dreams Exhibition Curator Susanna Brown, WORLD director Denise L'Estrange-Corbet, BLACK Magazine Editor Grant Fell and many more. 

Each night will be complemented by delicious food, drink and music in the spirit of glitz and glamour (adults $10, members $8, free for tertiary students and under 12s. Season pass for all five Smart Talks $25, members $20).
