Drawing Fashion celebrates a unique collection of some of the most remarkable fashion illustrations from the
twentieth and twenty first centuries. These original works define the fine art of illustrating fashion, from Poiret, Chanel
and Dior to Lacroix, McQueen, Yamamoto and Viktor & Rolf.

The exhibition showcases fashion illustrators at their creative heights: Lepape at the beginning of the century,
Gruau in the 40′s and 50′s, Antonio throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s, to current artists Mats Gustafson, Francois Berthoud and Aurore de la Morinerie. Film-clips, music and photography sit alongside the original illustrations to
reflect not only the spirit and the style of the decades but also the wider social and cultural changes of the century.
It is the first time this collection, which was put together over the past 30 years by Joëlle Chariau of Galerie
Bartsch & Chariau, Munich has been displayed.
