The Frances Neady Collection of fashion illustration



A series of three fashion illustrations by famed fashion illustrator, and FIT alumni, Antonio Lopez.

This year, 2013, marks the 30th anniversary of The Frances Neady collection of fashion illustration, a unique collection of the works by prominent fashion illustrators from the 1920s to present.  Established in 1983 as a memorial to Frances Neady, professor of fashion illustration for more than forty years at both the Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology, the original nucleus of forty-five drawings has now grown to more than 300 works

Many of the works in the collection continue to be donations by the illustrators themselves—many of whom were former Neady students.  Standouts in the collection include works by Antonio, Bouché, Eric, Tod Draz, and Dorothy Hood among many, many other talented artists of fashion.

    The Frances Neady collection is outstanding! It was a privilege to see it begin (wow, 30 years ago already!) and grow over the years, and for our students to have access to some of the best examples of illustration in the 20th and now 21st century. By the way, this is my first visit to your blog, and I must say, everything on here is a treat for the eye and the creative spirit. Keep up the good work! — Lorraine
