I came across these spread layout drawings by Antonio Lopez in a 1970 edition of Vogue Pattern Book International and was immediately intrigued by them. They reminded me of the work of Peter Max. The byline only said "Drawings by Antonio; Photos by Otto Storch." So off I went to find out more. He was a very famous artist and had many muses including Jerry Hall, Grace Jones and Jessica Lange to name a few.
And a bit more on the fashion drawings with interview snippets from the likes of Lagerfeld. De La Renta, Missoni etc.

I really love this ad. The year is 1931 and the ad is by swimwear maker B.V.D. In the early 1930s the backs of bathing suits began to show more skin and reach towards the waistline. The continuing arrival of fashion from Paris and the current healthful benefits of the sun were everywhere to be seen and swimwear manufacturers were taking note! Aren't the jewel tones of the times wonderful too? Enjoy!
