Textiles On Paper: Phoebe Howard Illustrates

Launched on 26 January 2024

Whether illustrating in black and white or colour, the artist and Royal Drawing School alum, Phoebe Howard, is a master at depicting texture, creating a distinctive illustrative style that is quite unlike any other

Enamoured by her artistic prowess and illustrative style so patently rooted in fashion, SHOWstudio and Nick Knight not only invited Howard to depict the finest fashion from Paris' S/S 24 haute couture collections but also to take up a one-day live-streamed residency in our Belgravia-based studio.

Choosing to work her magic onto paper, adding her illustrative flair to the collections of Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior, Simone Rocha's Jean Paul Gaultier and Maison Margiela Artisanal, explore how Howard's texture-rich style, so elegantly borrows from each designer's S/S 24 vision while also communicating Howard's own fantasies.
