• Robert Fairer was born in London in the swinging sixties.
  • Growing up several paces from the Kings Road he was never far from the changing face of fashion.
  • Influenced by the music and fashion scene, he started photographing the international womenswear collections in the mid 1990's, it was a buzzy beautiful time..the beginning of the supermodels and theatrical show production never before seen. Everyone was an individual and every moment was a high. Robert was as integral to the then exclusive backstage arena as the designers, models and stars of hair and make-up.
  • Commissioned for assignments at Elle, Harpers Bazaar USA and then American Vogue for over a decade, Robert uniquely captured the fashion landscape in his instinctively glamorous style nurtured by his outstanding editors: Sally Singer, Andre Leon Talley, Hamish Bowles, Sarah Mower and his Editor in Chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour.
  • His behind the scenes photographic collection is currently being curated and archived for publication by his long time collaborator and wife Vanessa. Great projects lie ahead and once published, they will forever define his rare creative approach to exquisitely light and capture the highly provocative energy that was fashion backstage at its zenith.
