I popped into the Melbourne FineArt Gallery on Thursday for the opening of a delightful exhibition entitled French Fashion and Design: The Art of Fashion Illustration, featuring, among others, costume illustrations by Alfred Choubrac and fashion illustrations by the House of Jacques Heim. I have always appreciated the expression that good illustrators imbibe into the outfits they capture, and these are top notch (and all for sale, if you're lucky enough to be in a position to adorn your walls with them)!

Visit the gallery between 12 - 6 Monday to Friday, or 2 - 6 on Sunday until April 29th.
