Lee Miller is renowned as one of the 20th century's finest photojournalists, but the woman who photographed the liberation of Dachau began her career as a fashion model in 1920s New York. In the 1930s, she switched from New York to Paris and London and from model to photographer. This first study devoted to Miller's work in fashion presents an outstanding collection of her photographs for Vogue and couture houses, revealing fashion as the backbone of her extraordinarily varied career.
