Illustration Now! Fashion | Author: Julius Wiedemann

Every dress begins with a drawing, every skirt with a sketch.

Illustration is integral to fashion design not only as a means of expression, and the starting point of every design, but also for patterns and prints as well as magazine editorial illustrations. Often, artists will even illustrate the newest looks directly 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 around the globe. 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. Looking 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 must have tome for fashionistas, illustrators and anyone with an academic interest in the history of fashion. Bursting with inspiration and colour, this book will be a eye catcher on your coffee table!
