Christian Lacroix is one of the most fêted fashion designers of our time so it is a great honour and a considerable pleasure for FIG to be able to present a small group of his drawings to the gallery’s growing audience of collectors and fashion illustration aficionados.
FIG is delighted to present Beauty / FIGA 19.
We’ve asked the finest group of artists making fashion illustration today to consider the idea of beauty and make work that reflects their thoughts on this subject. The invitation was as wide as it was long but in the main the artists have focussed on what they do best – create imagery that turns our heads, surprises and delights.
William Ling, Director and Founder of Fashion Illustration Gallery today announced that the gallery will begin representing the paintings and drawings of Jordi Labanda exclusively worldwide.Jordi Labanda is amongst the world’s most revered fashion illustrators. Labanda has become internationally renowned for his expertly crafted paintings in gouache on paper that document, with superb draftsmanship, flair and unrivalled observation of detail, the prevailing trends over the last three decades.
For FIGA 18, we sent our artists back to the art room and asked them make works that could be described as belonging to the genre that is known as still life. So with brush, pencil, charcoal, crayon, chalk, pastel, gouache, ink, acrylic, scissors and glue, they’ve been hard at it, arranging bowls of fruit, vases full of flowers, shoes, perfume bottles and slices of cake!
