About

Drawing Fashion celebrates a unique collection of some of the most remarkable fashion illustrations from the twentieth and twenty first centuries. 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 showcases 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, music and photography 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 is the first time this collection, which was put together over the past 30 years by Joelle Chariau of Galerie Bartsch & Chariau, has been displayed.
