Looking at the history of fashion photography it's worth noting the impact the Nikon f camera had on the world of photography.
Released in 1959, it was first extremely durable SLR that revolutionized photography in journalism, celebrity portraits and fashion. The Nikon F series ruled in the world of 35mm photography up until the 80s when Canon starting catching up eventually surpassing them as the camera of choice for pros. Bert Stern used the Nikon f to photograph the iconic images of Marilyn Monroe. The lightweight SLR made it possible to shoot loose hand held journalistic fashion & celebrity images, a departure from the posed studied images taken with the larger format cameras. Nikon opened the world of commercial photography to hand held photography similar to the way the 3-axis gimbals changed the way we film handheld.
I'm not sure what the fine art photographers used backed then, I know many played with the twin lens reflex cameras and many stayed with large format, but in the late 70s I assisted commercial photographers in NYC, everyone I worked with used Nikon Fs and the Hasselblad (when the client wanted a larger chrome), but by far the Nikon was the go to camera for years, I only worked with one guy that shot with a Canon F1, (Canon's answer to the Nikon F). I remember the older photographers telling me stories how the Nikon F made many commercial photographers rich... Madison Avenue wanted that realistic loose look. They wanted to get away from the ultra clean look of large format, and make more believable images, similar to the handheld style Marty Scorsese used in the 70s with Means Streets & Taxi Driver using the new quiet Arri 35BL.
