Fashion Illustration

Being somewhat early for work the other day, I stepped into the bookstore next door and made the acquantaince of this book:

which opened to me the magical world of fashion illustration.  This discovery isn't of the same magnitude as say my accidental discovery of Perfumes The Guide, but comes close.

Eric for Mainbocher, 1939

 My favourite illustrator hands down is René Gruau who started illustrating in the 1930s and published work into the 1980s.  That is an incredible amount of fashion to have witnessed.

For Worth, 1945

For Dior, 1950

For Balenciaga, 1946

For Dior fragrance, 1972
