Andy Warhol Fashion by Simon Doonan
Before he found fame as the father of Pop Art, Andy Warhol was an accomplished advertising illustrator and commercial artist for fashion tastemakers such as Barney's, Neiman Marcus, I. Miller, Glamour, Mademoiselle and Harper's Bazaar. This delicately beautiful, colourfully playful and hugely influential fashion illustration work from the 1950s has never before been collected in a book. A pop object in itself, Warhol Fashion Drawings is a fun and gorgeous gallery of hundreds of his most delightful images. These witty drawings - fanciful shoes, chic hats, smart suits and perfect accessories to match - showcase his unique ability to find inspiration in the everyday and elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. Sprinkled with Warhol's perceptively funny observations - 'When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums' - Warhol Fashion Drawings is a must-buy book for anyone with style.
