Mr. Burt is an illustrator that has created a series of illustrations which he has entitled 'Fashion Crowd.'
The Fashion Crowd series features four illustrations of fashion's elite: Karl Lagerfeld of Coco Chanel, John Galliano, Anna Wintour and André Leon Talley of Vogue. The illustrations emulate the 20s-styled posters, complete with creases to add a unique effect.
Each poster features one of the four in a profile shot. Mr. Burt's ability to illustrate is evident; the Fashion Crowd looks exactly like their real-life selves. The artist also puts a satirical word play on the John Galliano illustration. The designer, who has been recently fired from Dior for his racist comments, is drawn wearing a sailor hat with the word 'Dioh!'
The Fashion Crowd posters are a must-see for any fashion lover. Mr. Burt's illustrations are unique and true to the likes of the icons.
