Fashion Show

14 March - 11 April 2015

To celebrate ‘Bath in Fashion 2015’, and as the next-door gallery to Bath’s Fashion Museum, David Simon Contemporary and Article are showcasing a contemporary exhibition by some of the most exciting, current, fashion illustrators in the industry. Jaqueline Bissett, Helen Bullock, Erin Petson and Sarah Tanat-Jones are illustrators who have worked with top names in fashion, from Dior and Prada to Ralph Lauren, John Galliano, Louis Vuitton, Liberty and Stella McCartney.

 

The show is accompanied by paintings of London fashionistas by Julian Bailey. Julian studied at the Ruskin School and the Royal Academy and exhibits regularly at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, as well as holding solo exhibitions in London, Australia and the United States of America. A selection of ceramics, prints, cards and jewellery is featured in our adjoining artisan homewares shop ‘Article’.

Sarah Tanat-Jones won the D&AD New Blood Award after graduating from Edinburgh College of Art and is since fast-becoming one of the UK’s rising stars of illustration. Clients include Asos, Benefit make-up, The Independent, The Guardian, Goop.com, Time Out. A fresh approach to illustration, using bold colour mixed with a reverential love of British illustration heritage; think, Eric Ravilious goes punk rock! An artist and illustrator, and musician, the fashion illustration is in her blood – her grandfather Ken Tanat-Jones was a top London fashion illustrator in the 1950s and 1960s.

Jacqueline Bissett has worked with Selfridges, Harrods, Givenchy, Escada, Giorgio Beverly Hills, Samsung & Kurt Geiger, amongst others. Bissett graduated from the Bourneville School of Art & Epsom College of Art. Her style sees splashes of colour bled onto a wet page. It’s a playful approach, quickly executed, with strong black line adding definition and contrast to the soft watercolours.

Limited edition prints of each of these are available alongside the originals.

Designer-collaborations include John Galliano, Ossie Clark, Phoebe English, Ralph Lauren, and Louis Vuitton. Her painterly, ‘less is more’ approach gives a colourful, quick and textured feel of the designs she illustrates, simplifying forms and faces, whilst emphasising use of colour.  'Helen is the embodiment of her brilliant work, bold, joyous and energetic.'  - Nick Knight, photographer.
