When you’ve been working for six decades and you still don’t what you want to be best remembered for, you might hope that you’ve just been enjoying the journey not worrying about its destination. After all, the final stop is death (at least for now) so you could argue that it really doesn’t matter at all; living in the moment is what it’s all about. Hats off then to Chris Moore, the legendary catwalk photographer who’s been behind the red rope of the fashion industry since the 1960s and, at the ripe old age of 84, is still very much there.

He also takes a wry look at which brands have signed up which celebs to propogate their message; see if you can play our game of pairs on page 92 and match the celeb with the watch.

You might associate Norfolk with its endless beaches, big open skies and Sandringham, but it’s also a hotbed of entrepreneurialism, where brands have HQs on historic estates and the daily commute might be a 10-minute walk across a field. Rosalyn Wikeley investigates this new breed of bucolic business owner (p110).
