When Fashion Illustration is well executed (drawn) it is ART ! And when an old master like multi-talented/fashion designer Wolfgang Joop, draws it is Art ! Wolfgang opens his new exhibition of fashion drawings in Berlin: an overview of 4 decades of fashion illustrations.
For Wolfgang Joop, art and fashion are most impressive when the objects have the spark of an old master, whom he studied extensively, and possess “an aura of unintentionalness; or the intention to be completely self-satisfied.” The French call this l’art pour l’art.
Wolfgang Joop’s sketches are art for art’s sake. “My sketches should look as though they emerged effortlessly. They explain my sense of time, my concept of beauty, with the most minimalist and yet self-assuredly effective means.”
And they all for SALE !!!
