[43.8 MiB] Fashion Illustration Africa books by Tapiwa Matsinde

Discover Africa’s rising generation of fashion illustrators who are bringing diversity to the industry.

Fashion Illustration Africa is a vibrant, visually inspiring sourcebook that presents the work of 23 dynamic fashion illustrators and designers drawn from across Africa and the diaspora, whose work is shaping what has until now been a virtually non-existent commercial industry across the continent. Given a voice by social media and the internet’s democratizing, border-crossing abilities, this is a young and digitally savvy generation who are also championing diversity in a global industry that tends to be defined by one model of beauty and style.

Fashion illustration, for these illustrators, is about more than just capturing clothing and the latest trends. Intertwining the influences of global pop culture with the realities of their everyday surroundings and observations, their work embraces the differences in realistic figure sizes and complexions, depicted alongside the more highly stylized and exaggerated forms that are usually associated with the art of fashion illustration.

Highlighting an array of techniques and styles from traditional pen and ink to collage and digital renderings, Fashion Illustration Africa will enthuse budding and established fashion illustrators, designers and industry professionals alike. The book opens with an introduction and historical context by fashion illustrator Zakirah Rabaney, and is completed with a contacts list and bibliography.
