Candid snapshots of the supermodel era

Featuring Kate, Naomi, Cindy and Linda, Supermodels at the End of Time provides a fresh look at the golden age of modelling

The supermodel era that defined the late 80s and early 90s was unique, and it will never be replicated. It was a time when a small group of models ruled the runways and dominated the media; when they wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 (supposedly); when they transcended the role of a typical model and achieved an A-list status, had TV programmes and launched clothing lines. Everything they touched turned to couture. 

A new exhibition and limted edition artist’s book titled Supermodels at the End of Time is set to shed new light on this moment in fashion history. Taken by Miles Landin, who worked for WWD and W Magazine, the photos offer an intimate insight into the supermodel era and its major players – from Kate and Naomi, to Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Iman, Christy Turlington and Devon Aoki. The book also features text from Glamorama by Bret Easton Ellis (who wrote American Psycho, The Informers and The Rules of Attraction), which explores the supermodel phenomenon with the author’s signature sardonic wit.

Supermodels at the End of Time is on show at Station Independent Projects, New York, until October 30th
