Fashion Illustration Legends - Mats Gustafson

NY-based artist Mats Gustafson was born in Sweden in 1951. He studied costume and stage design at the Scandinavian Drama Institute in Stockholm and in 1978 had his first fashion illustrations published in British Vogue. This led to contributions in American Vogue and Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. In 1980 he moved to New York. In addition to making illustrations for the world's most important fashion magazines, Gustafson has been commissioned by a host of international designers and brands including Comme des Garcons, Romeo Gigli, Chanel and Yohji Yamamoto. I absolutely love his Vogue China’s December 2012 serie called “Red Romance”; it features the most memorable red pieces from the Fall 2012-13 collections from Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and many others.
