Fashion as Fantasy about 1975
  • Artist Rooms
This poster is advertising an exhibition that was staged at the Rizzoli Gallery in New York in the winter of 1975-6. Titled ‘Fashion as Fantasy’ the show featured the work of numerous artists from both the fashion and fine art worlds. For Andy Warhol the world of fashion had always fascinated him and it hugely influenced his work – from his early commercial illustrations in the 1950s of women’s shoes and handbags to his depictions of celebrities and models in his iconic screenprinted portraits.
