    Fashion Fridays ~ Lena Ker

    Russian fashion illustrator Lena Ker uses watercolour paint so delicately, yet still manages to bring attention to the finest details in a garment whilst creating eye-catching pieces. Her accessory illustrations are just as inviting as those with people pictured. I also particularly like the way her work looks in print, as editorials; it sits so beautifully next to the text.

    Fashion Fridays ~ Georges Lepape (1887-1971)

    Born in Paris, France in 1887, Georges Lepape studied at the famous École des Beaux-Arts. In 1910 he exhibited at the Salon d’Automne, where he met the great designer Paul Poiret. They became friends and began working together. In 1911, he illustrated Poiret’s brochure, Les Choses de Paul Poiret. It was illustrated in a very similar style of Poiret’s previous brochure, Robes de Paul Poiret by Paul Iribe.

    Shortly after, Mr. Lepape, left to work for designer Jean Patou, where he illustrated Patou’s collections. During this period he illustrated many magazine covers for the likes of the Gazette Du Bon Ton, Femina, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. In 1923, Mr. Lepape produced theatre costumes designs for Maurice Maeterlinck’s The Blue Bird. However, after the war, he focused on less fashion-orientated projects, and illustrated for advertising and publishing.

    Georges Lepape’s style is without doubt a product of his period. Very influenced by the Art Deco movement, but equally influenced by Persian miniatures, which was only just being discover by western artists. The two styles draw a lot of parallels, their strong geometric shapes and bright colours. However I would attribute his ligne claire sensibilities to the miniatures.

    As with a lot of the early 20th century illustrator’s, it is hard to find a good body of their work in one place, however Vogue have a great collection of his covers on their website.

    Esra Røise is a Norwegian illustrator based in Oslo. She is inspired by everyday situations and snapshot photography due to their impulsive nature and bad cropping. You can see this in her work, which are often simply pencils and flashes of colour. They come alive, despite the fact that illustration is inanimate. Her facial expressions are unusual and intriguing and boy, can she draw hair! Clients include Vogue, Wallpaper*, United Airlines and Nike.
