While withdrawing some really old books at work the other day, I was stopped in my tracks when I saw the inside lining pages of this book and found a very surprising set of illustrations. Note, this book is from 1991 –
The illustrations are credited to a Dan Wright, I actually tried to contact him (but was unsuccessful) because you may recognize these illustrations from the Spring 2010 Miu Miu runway full of cats and swallows.
It’s really interesting to see how fashion is pulled from anywhere. I just hope the illustrator was properly compensated.
