Antonio Lopez- Fashion Illustrator

Norma Kamali Feature in Vogue- November 1984. Illustrations by Antonio Lopez

These gorgeous pages of Illustrations were created by Antonio Lopez for Vogue November 1984. The article was written by Andre Leon Tally, Fashion editor at large for Vogue and seen on last years edition of America’s Next Top Model. This fun piece of work is a feature on Norma Kamali. She is described as Kooky and over the top. She names her clothing, probably best for archiving them. So if you bought a pair of Linen ankle strap wedge shoes, they are called Ra-Ra’s. Now that many designers are going video as a medium to distribute their collections, Norma Kamali was doing this in the early 80s.

She was tuned into Pop Culture and Antonio captured her collection very well amongst this six page spread. Her vibrant colors, her sporty transitions into swim wear, body wear, body suits, ect. She certainly didn’t take herself seriously. Antonio created the above picture on the right on a computer. Must have been among the first to create illustrations with this kind of technology!!! It reminds me of Matisse’s cut outs!!!!
