Elements in Art, Fashion, Textile Design can all be intertwined. Various inspirations are delivered through intricate line drawings, bright colors, simple execution, and whimsical designs.  We also need to admit their existence in the art market. Fashion illustrations are hard to find sometimes. But when you do, they’re a treasure to hang. They are not usually bought and sold on the art market, but that is seeming to change lately.

Here are some fashion illustrators to check out: Francois Berthoud, David Downton, Richard Gray, Rene Gruau, Grayson Perry, and Hiroshi Tanabe.
