Licensing agency Caroline Mickler has been appointed to represent Norman Parkinson – among the most celebrated fashion photographers of the 20th century – with opportunities for gift companies to get on board.
“We believe that a Norman Parkinson collection of licensed gifts, stationery, ceramics and apparel products will allow consumers to enjoy beautiful fashion photography for many years to come,” stated Caroline. “Photography as an art form has the ability to capture a unique moment in time and Norman Parkinson’s body of work is still highly relevant.”
The celebrated photographer’s career spanned the 1950’s to the 1980’s including a long collaboration with Vogue. His images capture the style of the 20th century: from pre-war 1930s Britain and the austerity fashions of World War Two, the Parisian New Look of the 1950s and Swinging London in the 1960s, to the glamour and glitz of the 1970s and 80s. For many years his images have been celebrated in books and magazines, while his fine art prints have featured on the walls of galleries and homes.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Caroline Mickler and, through merchandise, bring this wonderful archive to a brand new audience,” said Alexis Venn, head of licensing at Iconic Images.
For other news about brands, Brand Licensing Europe (BLE) has transitioned to a virtual event as part of Festival of Licensing, taking place from October 6-29, which will be bringing together thousands of brands, manufacturers and retailers looking to connect with new and existing partners to secure new licensing deals for 2021.
