Fashion Illustration – Howard Tangye – Topshop Oxford Circus

Seeing as this is my first post, I thought I would start with my visit to Topshop on the 18th of February to see one of my favourite artists and fashion illustrators; Howard Tangye give a master class. The great partnership between Topshop and the Design Museum was what initially excited me about the master class itself as I visit both establishments frequently!

To start with, the interesting setting; in the middle of the Lower Ground Floor in one of the busiest shops in London meant that it was pretty manic and cramped, however its expected really if it was to be held in Topshop itself. Even so, I think this added to the excitement and rarity of the occasion. Howard Tangye himself, an accomplished fashion illustrator who has a unique style and ability to highlight the most interesting aspects of a model or garment managed to triumph in my eyes. Using a model, who wore the yellow smoke split front dress featured in the current Topshop Unique Collection, he chose particular blocks of colour to be shown and created a fascinating piece.

Definitely a visit to remember.
