Tanya Ling for Louis Vuitton, 2012

Fashion Illustration Gallery at Christie’s

Fashion illustration is rarely given the attention of other fine art but a week-long exhibition that opens this Friday at Christie’s South Kensington will help readjust the balance. The Fashion Illustration Gallery, which we have long admired for its eclectic mix of past and contemporary work, has teamed up with the auction house to stage the show that will feature artists from the Twentieth Century (Cecil Beaton, Andy Warhol and Antonio Lopez) alongside living fashion illustrators including Mats Gustafson, Francois Berthoud and Tanya Ling. Pop along on Sunday afternoon between 3pm and 6pm and you can have a guided tour with Tony Glenville author of New Icons of Fashion Illustration which was published earlier this year.
