Rene Gruau & Dior

Mixed media illustration by Karen Decker

The work of Rene Gruaur

The fabulous work of Rene Gruau is currently being exhibited at the Mayor Gallery in Cork Street London, only a short walk from Piccadilly. Close collaboration with Christian Dior resulted in iconic work that will inspire you.

If you are at a loose end this weekend, practice your fashion sketching. Start with the templates and experiment to build up your confidence. Try using collage techniques, mixed media (inks, newsprint, pencil, charcoal, pens, different papers, maps, buttons, stitched lines.) The more you practice, the better you will be and the more confident you will become. Research for a simple starting point that suits your ability. Many of you have really good drawing skills already, so experiment and see what you can achieve.
