How has sex, politics, money, youth, class and even taste shaped the silhouette? In a special performative lecture combining live fashion sketching on the iPad, fashion illustrator Danielle Meder presents a talk delving into the makings of fashion trends just before the official kick-off of World MasterCard Fashion Week.
Danielle Meder is a fashion illustrator specializing in live runway sketching and exquisite designer paper dolls. Sketching at fashion weeks in New York, Paris and London, using both traditional and digital media, she has developed a spontaneous, elegant style in the tradition of Joe Eula and Kenneth Paul Block. Her live runway sketches have appeared in Women's Wear Daily and FLARE, and she has been photographed in the act of drawing at fashion shows by The Sartorialist and The New York Times. Her paper dolls have been commissioned by New York Magazine, Bloomingdale's, and The Hudson's Bay Company.
