TRAITS TR谷S MODE 每 FRENCH FASHION ILLUSTRATION EXHIBITION

26 Oct 每 20 Nov 06 每 Alliance Francaise de Singapour

Fashion illustration is beginning to find new forms of narrative and aesthetic values. The new style of illustration is no longer a mere visual representation of fashion objects: rather, it transforms the mental worlds and fantasies embodied by those objects into images, while in turn, each new image nourishes the next fashion ephemeral. Gradually, a new landscape is taking shape in the graphic art of fashion illustration, a landscape peopled by images bordering on the contemporary arts, yet never abandoning its demanding aesthetic heritage 每 a development that is shaping the unique artistic world of contemporary French fashion illustration. Traits Tr谷s Mode is a production of Association Francaise d*Action Artisque.

Organised the Alliance Francaise de Singapour, and co-presented by The French Embassy and SG Private Banking (Asia Pacific).
