InHaus Presents: Drawn to Glamour, Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard
Explore fashion illustrations by Jim Howard with remarks by Jane Burke.
Drawn to Glamour: Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard presents the award-winning editorial work by artist Jim Howard, a well-respected member of Denver’s fashion community.
More than 100 works on paper showcase Howard’s four-decade fashion illustration career, starting with his early advertising campaigns for Neiman Marcus in the late 1950s, and through the ‘70s and ‘80s when the fashion illustration industry was at its height. The exhibition offers a nostalgic look at fashion trends set by top ready-to-wear designers, high-end fashion retailers, and cosmetic companies.
In addition, Drawn to Glamour features eight looks from the Denver Art Museum’s fashion collection and four men’s silhouettes on loan from private lenders that capture the essence of some of the most iconic trends of the late ’50s to the early ’80s.
All InHaus events include an approx. 30 min reception, an introduction, then either a tour the exhibition with a representative from Denver Art Museum or at your own pace. The representative from the Denver Art Museum is usually someone from the curatorial team who can open up the floor for a short Q&A after the show.
