Joe Eula : master of twentieth-century fashion illustration by Cathy Horyn( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first, and sure to be definitive, collection of the iconic work of Joe Eula, the foremost illustrator of the late twentieth century, featuring more than 200 gorgeous black-and-white and full-color sketches and illustrations, the majority of which have never been published before. An illustrator, graphic artist, costume designer, stage director, and tastemaker, Joe Eula lived at the center of the high fashion and art worlds. In a career that spanned five decades, he sketched for every major couture house, from Chanel and Givenchy, to Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. He illustrated album covers and/or show posters for Miles Davis, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, and the Supremes. He designed costumes for the choreographer Jerome Robbins. He directed a television special with Lauren Bacall. In the 1960s, with the photographer Milton Greene, he formed one of the most progressive studios of the era, responsible for producing tantalizing images--including Faye Dunaway as a stylish Bonnie Parker--in magazines like Life. His friendships were no less extensive, from Coco Chanel, with whom he used to treat to movie dates in Paris, to Andy Warhol, Bette Midler, and Elsa Peretti. If modernity was the hallmark of Halston's fashion in the 1970s, it was Eula, as the label's creative director, who helped clarify it with his spare drawings and fluent ideas. This stunning volume brings together a selection of his finest work. New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn's extensive introduction illuminates Eula's development as an artist and his contributions to the worlds of fashion, design, arts, and entertainment, relating numerous personal anecdotes and interviews with those who knew him well as well as citations from his personal writings. Lovers of fashion and illustration will delight in the range of art and the famous clientele on display in this collectible volume

Cathy Horyn, chief fashion critic at the New York Times, discusses fashion journalism. She offers advice on working as a fashion journalist and presents a slide show of designs from several different designers' collections. During the slide show she briefly critiques the fashions, providing an example of the critical analysis that she employs in her writing. She notes that, as a fashion journalist, when she views a collection, what she is looking for is evidence that a designer has progressed. While recognizing the difficulty of running a successful business, she states that she wishes new designers would be more willing to take creative risks. She cites the design team Bruce for the originality of their designs. She concludes her lecture with a discussion of important qualities that a fashion journalist should have: curiosity, patience, and the ability to listen
