With the dramatic increase in the popularity of fashion exhibitions over the past decade, this groundbreaking book provides a timely look at the evolution of the practice, taking as its anchor the seminal 1971 Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition “Fashion: An Anthology by Cecil Beaton”. The authors’ combined experience of more than 40 years – one in architecture and exhibition design and the other in fashion history and curating – informs this detailed account of the exhibition.

An enterprising vendor in east London has given their bedroom a boudoir feel by leaving a racy fuchsia negligee, complete with bottle of red and two glasses on the bed for the estate agent’s snapper to capture

It's just a typical teenage vignette: a girl sits in a shopping mall slurping on a soft drink before heading off on a date. No matter that the subject, Tel Aviv octogenarian Rosi Star, is, in fact, more than a few years out of school. She had, as photographer Andi Schmied discovered, youth to burn. "One of my favourite things she said to me was how annoying her grandchildren were. She said they were always calling her, and how did they think she had time [to speak] to them?"

TV review: Imagine: Vivian Maier – Who Took Nanny's Pictures? BBC1; Secrets from the Workhouse. ITV

Imagine's film about Vivian Maier, a French nanny who turned herself into a remarkable photographer, began with the tabloid headline reduction of her life: "Mary Poppins with a camera". If you already knew her story, I imagine that might have made you wince a little. If you didn't know her story, it was a mark of how good Jill Nicholls's film was that you winced in retrospect, when the Mary Poppins tag came round again. By then you understood how far short that simplification fell of Maier's captivating and thought-provoking tale, full of sad ironies and fruitful paradoxes.
