An ex-student of my old stomping grounds, Middlesex University, Richard Gray’s talent was spotted by none other than Anna Piaggi. In 1988 Piaggi asked Grey to collaborate with her for her famous Doppie Pagine (double-page Spread) in Vogue Italia. Since then Grey has gone on to work with big fashion brands such as Agent Provocateur, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. He has illustrated for celebrities, major fashion shows, and had his work in the windows of Milan’s Via Della Spiga. His career came full circle in 2006 when he was asked to design an installation for Anna Piaggi’s exhibition Fashion-ology. You can find more of Grey’s illustrations here.
