    Georges Lepape (1887-1971) was born in Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Working as an illustrator of designs for pantaloon gowns by Paul Poiret from 1909, he captured the shocking yet anticipatory move towards allowing greater physical freedom in women's fashion. His collaboration with Poiret included the innovative compilation of limited-edition albums displaying fashion illustrations. Lepape illustrated the collections of Jean Patou from 1912 and worked freelance to illustrate fashion deigns in magazines including Femina, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. The sculptural simplicity and curvilinear style of his work was influenced by contemporary trends towards orientalism and movements such as Cubism.

    Mats Gustafson (Swedish, b. 1951) began his career as an illustrator in the late 1970s, a time when editorial illustration was eclipsed by photography, and watercolor as a conceptual medium had barely been explored. A graduate of Dramatiska Institutet (University College of Film, Radio, Television and Theatre) in Stockholm, he first applied his graphic sensibility to the art of stage design. This experience translated into illustration when he began publishing his work in eminent international fashion publications. The elegant and subtly expressive character of Gustafson's watercolor, pastel and cut- out paperworks expanded the possibilities of fashion illustration and nearly single-handedly reinvigorated the genre. Gustafson’s fashion and portrait illustrations have been included in editorial publications such as French and Italian Vogue, The New Yorker, and Visionaire, and he has created advertising art for Hermès, Tiffany & Co., Yohji Yamamoto, and Comme des Garçons. His work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group shows. Gustafson lives in New York.

    René Gruau (4 February 1909 - 31 March 2004) [1] was a renowned fashion illustrator whose exaggerated portrayal of fashion design through painting has had a lasting effect on the fashion industry . Because of Gruau's inherent skills and creativity, contributed to a change in the entire fashion industry through the new pictures that represented the already popular designs created by designers in the industry. The benefits, including economic stimulation and enhancement of advertising are still vividly presented in the industry today via a new way of fashion illustration, fashion photography. Gruau became one of the best known and favorite artists of the haute couture world during the 1940s and 50s working with Femina, Marie-Claire, L'Officiel, L'Album Du Figaro and an assortment of “high-style” magazines.[2] Gruau’s artwork is recognized and commended internationally in some of Paris and Italy's most prestigious art museums including the Louvre in Paris and the blank in Italy. in addition to his international fame and recognition, "Gruau's artwork is known for its timeless and enduring style"[2].
