5.0 out of 5 stars !! A MUST HAVE FASHION ITEM !!, 30 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Imagemakers: Cutting Edge Fashion Illustration (Mitchell Beazley Art & Design) (Paperback)
I am an avid admirer of fashion illustration, having lectured in the subject for over a decade.
The author, Martin Dawber, is extremely inspiring, concise and eloquent in reviewing over 50 of the World's leading fashion illustrators.
Of the exceptional talent, featured in this cutting edge publication, two outstanding artists contribute the most highly skilled, innovative and breathtaking work featured in the book, (to be located in the final section, entitled, Avantist).
These commanding artists are Lidia Cerutti and Fiona Wylie.
Their work is entirely unique, truly contemporary and beautifully depicted with a highly accomplished delineation.
I personally find Fiona Wylie's images dominate the entirety of work in all of the four sections. I expect that these illustrations are simply a tantalising taster of future award-winning advertising campaigns and an iconic career ahead of one so young.
Dissappointingly, on the other hand, the works of Jasper Goodall and Julie Verhoeven appear to ba a palid parody of their once triumphant and engaging portryals.
Fashion illustration is evolving and fortunately there are plenty of seats to be filled by many gifted and stylish illustrators, particularly the likes of Lidia Cerutti and Fiona Wylie.
To quote Jasper Conran's foreword: " Fresh, exciting - this is the definitive sourcebook of fashion illustration today".
