Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion is pleased to announce its next exhibition Go Figure: New Fashion Illustration; the second in a series which showcases the brightest young talent across fashion design and illustration.
Go Figure brings together more than 60 works from thirteen international fashion illustrators who work in a variety of media, from the digital to the hand-drawn via the physical. By showing works by artists who work not only in fashion illustration, but bring influences from their backgrounds in fashion design, graphic design, photography and film into their practice, the exhibition aims to provide an insight into this multi-faceted field.
What binds this group together is the level of attention to detail, craftsmanship and execution, demonstrated through traditional and innovative approaches to materials and process. Work on display has been selected from recent years, both from the illustrator’s professional and personal portfolios to give a sense of each illustrator’s personal creative vision. The illustrations in the exhibition depict menswear and womenswear collections almost equally and provide both a glimpse of London’s creative fashion design talent and more established international names.
Works include Richard Kilroy's hand drawn menswear illustrations (above), Glasgow based Lesley Barnes' visual pattern and colour works and Gothenberg based illustrator, Hanna Mueller's striking ink & aquarelle technique portraits.
Go Figure has been curated by Ligaya Salazar, Curator of Contemporary Programmes at the V&A and Polona Dolžan, independent curator.
