Vintage Fashion Illustration by Marnie Fogg

Vintage fashion illustration

If the Vanessa Mooncie fashion print featured yesterday made you long for the real thing, there's plenty of stunning examples in Marnie Fogg's new book Vintage Fashion Illustration


This is a perfect title if you are looking to be inspired: 208 pages, paperback and reasonably priced. The source of its material is also one of the best – the illustrations are taken from the magazine Harper's Bazaar. And you've got the authority of Marnie Fogg's writing as well: we've covered her books on everything from 1950s fashion prints to vintage weddings.

Covering from 1930 up to 1970, the spread of images shows the changing styles of fashion illustration over these forty years. Whether you are a budding designer, illustrator or simply interested in twentieth-century fashion, this book is bound to be every bit as much as a must read as Cally Blackman's book on the same subject, featured on this site many years ago now. 

You can pick up a copy for £9.09 from Foyles online.
