News: Drawing Fashion, London

drawingfashionDrawing Fashion‘, a new exhibition opening November 3rd at London’s Design Museum, explores some of the greatest fashion illustrations from the twentieth and twenty first centuries. According to the museum, “these original works define the fine art of illustrating fashion, from the collections of Chanel, Dior, Comme des Garçons and Poiret as well as Viktor & Rolf, Lacroix and McQueen.”
 
The exhibition running through March 6th will showcase fashion illustrators at their creative heights: Lepape at the beginning of the century, Gruau in the 40′s and 50′s, Antonio throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s, to current artists Mats Gustafson, Aurore de la Morinerie and Francois Berthoud. Film-clips, news reels, music and photography will sit alongside the original illustrations to reflect not only the spirit and the style of the decades but also the wider social and cultural changes of the century.
 
It will be the first time this collection, which was put together over 30 years by Joelle Chariau of Galerie Bartsch & Chariau, has been displayed.
