Andy Warhol Fashion, Foreword by Simon Doonan
Before he found fame as the father of Pop Art, Warhol made fashion illustrations on his kitchen table for New York's fashion tastemakers such as Neiman Marcus, I. Miller, Glamour, Mademoiselle and Harper’s Bazaar.
Thames & Hudson have collected together Andy Warhol’s delicately beautiful, colourfully playful and hugely influential fashion illustration work and put them in this brilliant little book.
A pop object in itself, Andy Warhol Fashion is a fun and gorgeous gallery 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 of it, department stores are kind of like museums’ – Andy Warhol, the book contains are insightful foreword by Simon Doonan, the internationally acclaimed window dresser.
Paperback, 256 pages, 250 colour illustrations.
