Opening Reception: Saturday, April 3, 7 – 10PM
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”– Coco Chanel
Artistic representation of fashion has existed since the dawn of civilization. From the statues of Mesopotamia, the walls of Egyptian pyramids, the master paintings of the Renaissance, the cover of Vogue’s first issue in 1892, and through today, artists have continued to carefully document fashion of the period. Gallery Nucleus is therefore proud to present our first fashion illustration exhibition.
We are privileged to have an international roster featuring established as well as emerging contemporary fashion illustrators. Exhibiting artists working in a variety of mediums from paint, watercolor, ink, textiles and digital media. These artists have worked with designers such as Dior, Jean-Paul Gualtier, and Marc Jacobs just to name a few. They have graced the pages of publications including, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Nylon and many more. We are pleased to showcase the ever expanding world of fashion illustration that represents the latest trends of our time and captivates the greatest styles that will last forever.
