The many incarnations of illustration on this planet of fashion
Each and every dress begins with a drawing, Each and every skirt with a sketch. Illustration is integral to fashion design not only as a means of expression, and the start line of Each and every design, but also for patterns and prints in addition to magazine editorial illustrations. Ceaselessly, artists will even illustrate the latest looks right away from the catwalks. It’s high time we celebrated fashion illustration in our Illustration Now! series: here you’ll find new work from 90 artists world wide, including Ruben Toledo, Aurore de La Morinerie, Bil Donovan, Tanya Ling, and Jean-Philippe Delhomme. The book features quotes by experts from the fashion world: Valentino compliments the work of Gladys Perint Palmer; voices out of the studios of Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, and H&M add their praise for the talents in the book.
Following an introduction by illustration expert Steven Heller, the historical essay by art and fashion historian Adelheid Rasche provides an in-depth exploration of the subject. Taking a look back to the 17th century, she draws a timeline of fashion illustration until today, accompanied by images such as an early etching by François Watteau, a drawing by Paul Iribe for the book of the famous Parisian couturier Paul Poiret, and illustrations by the highly acclaimed masters of modern fashion illustration René Gruau and Antonio Lopez, in addition to, from more up to date years, François Berthoud.
