Fashion Illustrator: Tobie Giddio

As part of my passion for fashion illustration, I’m always on the lookout for work by professionals that blows me away – and, yes, I am building up something of a collection in the process. Smiles.

Today, I’m loving the illustrative art of Tobie Giddio, having been inspired by the ‘Le Chou Noir …’, above right, currently to be seen in the Show Studio Shop.

If you’re interested, as I was, in finding out more, here’s a brief extract from the Fashion Illustration Gallery (FIG) Tobie Giddio bio, click the link to read it in full, and some of my favourite Tobie Giddio Illustrations, principally sourced from Tobie Giddio and the Show Studio Shop:

Upon graduation from high school, Tobie, determined to move to New York City, entered the Fashion Institute of Technology to study fashion illustration. Soon after graduating college she began illustrating advertisements for Bergdorf Goodman that ran weekly in the New York Times through to the end of the eighties.

Commissions during Nineties included innovative editorials for Interview Magazine and elaborately illustrated forecasting books and editorial for Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.

Projects in fashion have included work for Seibu Department stores, Neiman Marcus, The Limited stores and Ann Taylor Inc. who commissioned work for their windows and in-store displays. Recent work includes commissioned pieces for Apple Computers and Tiffany & Co.

I really love the technique and style of the charcoal sketches, in particular, and the variation of both, along with medium, evident elsewhere.

I know which of these I’d like to add to my collection but do click across to the Tobie Giddio site to see a lot more on her and her work should you wish to do the same.. There really are some beautiful illustrations to be seen there.

Originals and prints are for sale, if you’re interested, through the artist or on the sites I’ve linked below:
