Fashion illustration is in the spotlight during a gallery exhibition at the Alhambra | All the rage

April 1, 2010 | 12:36pm

The Nucleus Gallery, an art space in the Alhambra, will host an exhibition that celebrates the revered (and often quirky) art of fashion illustration.

Debuting Saturday, “Line of Style: Fashion Illustration Spanning the Globe” will feature pieces from more than 20 international fashion illustrators whose work has appeared in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Nylon, among other publications.

A handful of artists represented have also collaborated with major design houses such as Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. A variety of media will be represented – watercolors and inks as well as textiles and digital media.

Featured artists include Dazed & Confused magazine contributor Baiba Ladiga, the late great film poster artist Bob Peak, London artist Coco Pit, Los Angeles resident Esther Kim, high fashion collaborator Jarno Kettunen, commercial fashion illustrator Laura Laine and Danish artist Naja Conrad Hansen. .

The gallery will host an exhibition opening night from 7-10 p.m., open to the public and featuring 50 artworks, fashion shows by local designers Connie Lim and Valerj Pobega, and raffle prizes. Find out more about the exhibition and the event on the gallery’s website.
