Transcript of Copy of Copy of Copy of Dissertation proposal Fashion Illustration

Project Proposal I am investigating fashion illustration because it is a personal interest of mine. I plan to make illustration my profession after I have graduated, and studying this will give me a wider knowledge of this specialist subject. I would like to be commissioned for producing my own fashion illustrations for clients and so this investigation will make me more aware of the opportunities available in the design industry, in regards to where and how this type of medium would be used. It will not only be beneficial for myself but will also be beneficial for the wider area of graphic communication and for people working or studying in illustration. It will provide additional information and knowledge of how and why the role of a fashion illustrator has changed and what the future holds for fashion illustration. I am going to investigate how and why the role of a fashion illustrator has changed and how this type of medium is used in today's design industry. I will research this topic through variety of primary and secondary resources. I will look at books such as; 100 Years of Fashion Illustration by Cally Blackman, Fashion Illustration Now by Lawrence Zeegan, Drawing Fashion by Colin Mcdowell, Photography in Advertising by Peer Erickson and Appearances – Fashion Photography since 1945 by Martin Harrison.
I will also look at articles and electronic resources that relate to my subject topic and use email and social networking sites to contact illustrators and designers working within this field of illustration. I think I will find through my investigation that fashion illustration has adapted its role due to the increased usage of photography to represent the image. Even though fashion illustration had changed and has been on the decline, I think that with the increasing sense of nostalgia in art and the combination with digital elements, illustration looks set to continue its resurgence and fashion illustration will work alongside photography but will never replace it. I will look at the history of fashion illustration, including what this type of medium was originally used for. I will look at both Iconic and modern fashion illustrators for example Rene Gruau - creator of some of the most iconic fashion images of the 20th century and Jason Brooks - known as a pioneer in his field and who helped bring about a reform in the world of fashion illustration. I will also look at the brief history of fashion photography and how this impacted fashion illustration and finally digital technology and how this has revived fashion illustration today. creator of some of the most iconic fashion images of the 20th century known as a pioneer in his field, Jason Brooks helped bring
