Internationally acclaimed fashion illustrator Megan Hess is known for her deliciously glamourous, ultra-feminine (and simply beautiful) fashion illustrations depicting iconic moments in fashion. Having worked for many of the top fashion houses, such as Chanel, Dior and Cartier, Megan’s work is instantly recognisable and fast-becoming as iconic as the gowns and brands she depicts.
Her original pieces of art have varied in scale from the size of a postage stamp to the expanse of an entire building. Her stunning framed prints are a favourite of the fashion world, popping up in fashionable interiors and boasted through instagram accounts the world over.
In ‘The Dress’: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion, Megan Hess explores the memorable dresses that have shaped the course of couture in recent decades. From the simple elegance of Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, to the promise of the romantic fairytale in Princess Di’s never-ending wedding dress, to the absurdity of Lady Gaga’s meat dress, Megan Hess celebrates the dress’s finest moments and takes the reader on a decadent romp through couture history…from the haute, to the weird, to the hot.
