The Joana Avillez Fashion Icon illustrations provide a breakdown of the biggest personalities in the fashion industry. The website Refinery 29 collaborated with the Manhattan-born and based cartoonist Joana Avillez to compile a list of today's forward-thinking creative forces who demonstrate genuine style. Each of these characters bring something completely different to the table, and any true fashionista will be able to recognize why they have all been chosen.

From designer Marc Jacobs to street style photographer Bill Cunningham and 90-year-old stylist Iris Apfel, these icons have the rare ability to take risk in their work and influence the world of fashion. The Joana Avillez Fashion Icon illustrations also pay tribute to Tom Ford, Anna Dello Russo, Andre Leon Talley, Daphne Guinness, Diane Pernet, Rei Kawakubo, Susie Bubble and Tavi Gevinson.
