Before he found fame as the father of Pop Art, Andy Warhol was an accomplished advertising illustrator and commercial artist for fashion tastemakers such as Barney's, Neiman Marcus, I. Miller, Glamour, Mademoiselle, and Harper's Bazaar. This delicately beautiful, colorfully playful, and hugely influential fashion illustration work from the 1950s has never before been collected in a book. A pop object in itself, Andy Warhol Fashion is a fun and gorgeous gallery of hundreds of his most delightful images. These witty drawings -- fanciful shoes, chic hats, smart suits, and perfect accessories to match -- showcase his unique ability to find inspiration in the everyday and elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. Sprinkled with Warhol's perceptively funny observations ("When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums."), and a reflection on Warhol's influence in the fashion world by Simon Doonan, Andy Warhol Fashion is a must-have acquisition for anyone with style.
