History of Fashion Images

Through history, illustration has been the primary means of communicating fashion information, styles and trends, both within the industry and to the general public. This course traces the evolution of fashion depiction from the earliest days of fashion catalogues in the 18th century, to contemporary digital illustration and the influence of well-known fashion photographers. Using a historical/theoretical emphasis, this course utilizes visual presentations, lectures, and guest speakers who will familiarize students with visual and aesthetic trends, the evolution of stylistic change, the history of fashion illustration in relation to fashion photography history. Current industry-based practices as well as artistic experimentation and exploratory work will also be covered.
