New Icons of Fashion Illustration
- The lavish celebration of leading artists shows the timeless and amazing diversity.
- A great trip to the best work now produced.
Fashion illustration is and has always been about far more than beautiful drawings of beautiful dresses. This lavish celebration of today’s leading artists in the field showcases the timeless craftsmanship and the amazing diversity that characterizes the genre.
From David Downton to Cecilia Carlstedt and from Jason Brooks to Jordi Labanda, 28 masters of fashion illustration from around the world are presented, one by one, in a major review of the best work ever produced. While some illustrators create bold graphics, others prefer delicate watercolors and ink drawings. Throughout the volume, both high-tech multimedia effects and traditional drawing skills are given pride, with many of the artists using a mix of techniques. Lively commentary follows the images, while interviews with each illustrator provide further insight into their influences and methods.
