Overview

The pages of magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Wallpaper are brimming with the exciting evocations of designs and trends created by a talented array of new artists. As seen in the advertising campaigns of designers such as Anna Sui. Marc Jacobs, and Yohji Yamamoto, fashion illustration has become the vehicle that defines the contemporary. This up-to-the-minute presentation showcases the work of nearly thirty of the top international illustrators from sixteen countries, among them Jeffrey Fulvimari, Hiroshi Tanabe, Carlotta, and Tobie Giddio. Fashion historian Laird Borrelli groups the distinctive and diverse illustration styles into three main categories. First, the Sensualists work in a fluid, fine-arts tradition in ink or acrylic, reveling in brushstrokes, layered color, textured papers, and paint. Next, the Gamines and Sophisticates focus on character, rendering girls with big eyes a la Twiggy who exude urban sophistication, elegance, and composure. Lastly, the work of the Technocrats -- designers who work on the computer at the vanguard of fashion illustration -- is featured here for the first time in any survey.

Included are illustrations specially commissioned for Fashion Illustration Now, as well as work drawn from artists' collections and from the world's leading fashion and style magazines. The book concludes with biographical and contact information, plus a self-portrait, for each artist. As well as being instantly accessible to followers of fashion and design everywhere, this dazzling book is an invaluable inspiration for illustrators of all kinds and an essential source of reference for students. It will be indispensable to anyone who is interested in what is most vital in fashion now.
