CultureHaus at Drawn to Glamour, Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard

InHaus Presents an evening at; Drawn to Glamour, Fashion Illustrations by Jim Howard

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. CultureHaus is ecstatic to announce a special opportunity to hear about the exhibition from the artist himself! Listen to Jane Burke interview the artist, Jim Howard, about his illustrations and career before you soak up the exhibition at your own pace.

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.

The event is free for CultureHaus members and one guest. There will be time at the beginning of the event to mingle and enjoy complimentary Odell beer, with other selections available at the cash-only bar. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP. We look forward to seeing you!
