Artwork by Megan Hess
When it comes to capturing the essence of a brand, a lifestyle or in this case the life of an icon, you will be hard pushed to find a medium as captivating as fashion illustration. With its often loose lines and unfinished characteristic, fashion illustration can take us into an inspirational dream across continents to a world where everything is possible.
World-renown illustrator Megan Hess, whose delightful artwork has graced the pages of Vanity Fair and the windows of Cartier and Bergdorf Goodman, has managed to capture the spirit of Coco Chanel in one jaw-dropping book.
Coco Chanel: The Illustrated World of a Fashion Icon tells the story of the life of Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel, from her humble beginnings, through the many heartaches she encountered, to the global success of the brand she created. We showcase some of our favourites to whet your appetite to what we can only describe as a visual treat.
