New York Fashion Week came – and went – with many exciting moments, including the two-day Fairchild Media Fashion Museum gallery and the launch of the WWD store to coincide with the exhibition. As ‘Fashion Month’ continues with fashion weeks in London, Milan and Paris, now is a great time to buy a piece of fashion history that adds a bit of sartorial magic to any living space.
The WWD store features a treasure trove of iconic fashion moments captured in photographs from Fairchild Media’s archives. With this new digital store, lovers of design, style and photography can own candid and staged moments of fashion history, including backstage and show photos.
Since 1892, WWD has documented pivotal moments in fashion and now shares its unparalleled behind-the-scenes access with the world. Dating back to the 60s, these exclusive images show how fashion has evolved over the years and pay tribute to the pioneering talents who foresaw the future of fashion and made it a reality.
“Not only is the WWD Store a natural extension of the over 110-year Fairchild legacy, but it’s also a testament to how the brand continues to build equity and grow in new ways and on new platforms to connect with the industry and consumer we serve , says Amanda Smith, president of Fairchild Media Group.
Prints from legends of the photographic medium – from Michel Maurou and Tim Jenkins to Guy Marineau – are available alongside the familiar roll call of luxury fashion designers such as Ralph Lauren, Anne Klein, Karl Lagerfeld and Halston. The art ranges from $20 for a small unframed print to $560 for large framed images, making a great gift idea for you or the fashionista on your Christmas gift list.
No matter what era you or they are a fan of—Kate Moss’s Calvin Klein years or Halston’s ubiquitous ’70s and ’80s—there’s something for everyone at the WWD store.

CK by Calvin Klein Resort 1994 collection
In 1992, Kate Moss signed with American designer Calvin Klein and subsequently appeared in a number of advertisements for his brand. Klein played a major role in shaping Moss’s career. Here she is wearing a minimalist suit from Calvin Klein’s spring 1995 ready-to-wear collection.
Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture Spring 1985 Collection
This photo shows Yves Saint Laurent’s “Broadway Suit” collection, inspired by George Gershwin, the first American opera. It also pays tribute to the elegant women of Harlem dressed in their Sunday best, which consisted of checked and striped silk accents and classic trousers.
Versace Fall 1993 Ready to Wear Collection
In 1974, Gianni Versace founded his first leather brand, Complice. Versace’s signature designs combined luxury with desire in an exciting mix that left even jaded fashion audiences floored. During this time, his creations captured the “Rock Chic” trend of the era, which feels more relevant than ever today with the grunge aesthetic at its peak.
Chanel Haute Couture Collection Fall 1983
This artwork is about Chanel’s iconic suit. Not many fashion items have stood the test of time like a Chanel tweed two-piece. The famous set not only lived on to become a fashion symbol, but also a representation of the liberated woman. Worn by many notable figures, including Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana, it has become a representation of sophistication and a permanent staple of the heritage brand.
Pauline Trigère Ready To Wear Fall 1980 Collection
French-American designer Pauline Trigere became famous for using common textiles such as cotton and wool in her evening wear designs. She also introduced the jumpsuit, which became essential to Halston’s glamorous ’70s style. This photograph shows Trigere’s potential to elevate practical workwear into a fashion favourite.
