Just 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. The power of their work has given the artists a new authority; today's illustrators don't just depict trends: they set them.
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 over 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 It represents work not only from the world’s most influential fashion and style magazines, but also includes unpublished work either specially commissioned for Fashion Illustration Next or drawn from the artists’ own collections.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 Archive Editor at Condé Nast. She is the bestselling author of seven books on fashion, including Fashion Illustration Now, Fashion Illustration Next and Handbags: A Lexicon of Style, all published by Thames & Hudson.
