Fashion illustration under the spotlight at Alfalibra Gallery09.10.2018
Fashion illustration is often in the shadow of photography, yet it is still a major discipline in fashion, which origins go back to the 19th century. Some illustrators, such as René Gruau, have left their mark on fashion history by sublimating the pages of the most prestigious magazines, starting with the various editions of Vogue. Today, Alfalibra Gallery highlights the work of contemporary illustrators with the exhibition “Fashion Illustrators” curated by Frédéric Fontan. On the gallery walls, the illustrations of Ali Mahdavi, Antoine Kruk, Marc-Antoine Coulon and Izak Zenou meet and attest to the talent of Parisian artists. No wonder then to find at the opening some of the most creative and colorful faces of Paris, from Catherine Baba to Olympia Solange, who came to discover the exhibition that will run until December 1st.
