New Icons of Fashion Illustration

New Icons of Fashion Illustration

By Tony Glenville


Usually ships within 2-3 days.
Fashion illustration is and always has been about far more
than pretty drawings of pretty dresses. This lavish celebration
of today’s leading artists in the field showcases the timeless
craft and amazing diversity that characterize the genre.
From David Downton to Cecilia Carlstedt and from
Jason Brooks to Jordi Labanda, 28 masters of fashion
illustration from across the world are featured, one by one,
in a grand tour of the best work currently produced. While
some illustrators create daringly bold graphics, others prefer
delicate watercolours and ink drawings. Throughout the
volume, both hi-tech multimedia effects and traditional
drawing skills are given pride of place, with many of the
artists using a mixture of techniques. Lively commentary
accompanies the images, while interviews with each
illustrator provide further insight into their influences
and methods.

• The first book to profile the key contributors
to the current revival of the genre

• Features an eclectic mix of international styles
including David Downton, Kareem Iliya, Julie
Verhoeven, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Jason
Brooks, Tanya Ling, and Autumn Whitehurst

• A must for anyone who bought Masters of Fashion
or 100 Years of Fashion Illustration
