I have always found that fashion illustration really captures the era that the clothes are from, and the style of the illustrators help to shape the trends in fashion. George Wolfe Plank (1883-1965) was an American artist illustrator, with his work appearing in Vogue in the form of multiple covers in an Art Deco style related to that of Helen Dryden and influenced, by among others, Edmund Dulac.
Here are a few of my favorites...
|Even in illustration those big sleeves are amazing. They do look a little like balloons though :)|
|I love the colours in this one, and the textures.|
|Where else would you see a woman in a floor length dress riding a white peacock?|
|1927 in fur and flowers|
