"The Fine Art of Fashion tells us of the changes in attitudes and fashion that have occurred throughout history. Its emphasis is on fashion as portrayed in popular and exclusive magazines from the eighteenth century until the present. These magazines are a window on the world: they capture the spirit of their time and place it in the perspective of society's development. Above all, it is the illustrations that tell the story: they are testimony to the talent and creativity of the great image-makers and master-craftsmen, whose work deserves a place in the history of artistic achievement."--BOOK JACKET.

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 Fine Art of Fashion Illustration is a visual celebration of fashion image making and illustration from the Renaissance to the end of the Art Deco period, when studio photography became predominant in the promotion of new fashionable styles. It shows fashion illustration as an art form of allure and beauty, as captured by talented image-makers and printed in publications spanning centuries. Featuring over 350 illustrations, it is a beautiful and comprehensive document of the talent and artistry that went into the design and making of European fashion images from the second half of the sixteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century.
