This exhibition charted the work of the most important fashion illustrators from the 1920s to the present day. We collaborated with architects Carmody Groarke1 to design a space that would create a subtle backdrop to the fine works on paper. The existing gallery space was transformed by a series of curved, white paper walls, and the exhibition lighting was placed within the structure to create a soft, ambient environment similar to that within traditional Japanese paper-screen dwellings.2 The graphics, inspired by early 20th century Vogue,3 were mounted as white texts on the reverse of the translucent walls, as an unobtrusive narrative accompaniment to the works.
