DESCRIPTION

Draw and Shoot offers a sampling of 20th century fashion drawings and photographs, showcasing the evolving aesthetics of fashion design and its documentation by pencil and camera. Over 50 works from the Museum’s collection will be on display from artists such as Rudolf Bauer, Carl Erickson, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, and John Rawlings.

The exhibition is a testament to changing notions of style, beauty, and the artistry of its documentation – from Rene Bouché’s drawings of private, in-store fashion shows typical of the 1940s to Helmut Newton’s highly-dramatic, gritty, and defiantly sexualized fashion shoots of the 1980s. The Museum’s assemblage artists and eras provide an insightful study of the rich history of fashion design, and serves as the perfect complement to exhibition, IMPACT: 50 Years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
