A few years ago, when Laird Borrelli’s bestselling Fashion Illustration Now was published, few commentators predicted the great renaissance in illustration that has now taken place.
Now, fuelled by the book’s publication, illustration is booming as never before.
Fashion Illustration Next focuses on the most innovative and exciting of the newly established names and a host of stars in the making, showing the highly distinctive styles of more than 40 international illustrators from 15 countries. It represents work not only from the world’s most influential fashion and style magazines, but also includes unpublished work either specially commissioned for Fashion Illustration Next or drawn from the artists’ own collections.
Complete with a self-portrait by each artist to accompany biographies and contact details, the result is one of the most irresistible and indispensable fashion publications of recent years.
Laird Borrelli is the Senior Fashion Editor at Style.com in New York City. A fashion historian and writer, her publications include Fashion Illustration Now and Net Mode. She has curated numerous international projects and exhibitions.
