The Image Makers – the Artistry of Manuel and Cambridge Jones

November 1st to November 29th

The Image Makers – the Artistry of Manuel and Cambridge Jones an exclusive exhibition of works from award winning British photographer Cambridge Jones’ upcoming coffee table book on Manuel, the legendary couturier to the stars. Jones is in the process of creating a unique collection of portraits featuring the iconic designer’s high profile clients wearing their favorite Manuel creation.

Jones, a celebrity in his own right has photographed four British Prime Ministers, The Queen, and everyone who is anyone from Sir Anthony Hopkins to James Bond. Some of his recent work resides in The Queen's private Library at Windsor Castle. Educated at Oxford University (Honors Degree in Politics, Philosophy & Economics) his commercial work centers primarily on the music business, politicians and actors.

Manuel, universally known for his exquisite diverse custom creations is more than a clothing designer. An image-maker, he put Johnny Cash in black, the Lone Ranger in a mask, and Elvis in a jump suit. He has dressed just about every country star to come out of Nashville and beyond. From Dwight Yoakam to Dolly Parton, Keith Urban to Kenny Chesney, the list is endless.
