Amazing pictures! I love the 1920's vibe! =)http://pinkchampagnefashion.blogspot.com/
I always scan the Fortnum's ads from the 70s- the illustrations are always so chic and charming.
The Artist’s name is David Wolfe. He drew one or two of our things when we supplied Fortnums the early ’70’s.
Hello Jean! Thank you so much for the information, he was certainly a talented artist – and I love the Jean and Martin Pallant pieces I have seen (but I haven’t seen nearly enough for my liking!).
Wow. was browsing around the web and came across this. David Wolfe is my dad! He did not hold on to most of his fashion illustrations from the seventies, so it is wonderful to see them again. He went from illustrating to forming the world’s first fashion forecasting company, and he is still a big name in that field, even at the ripe old age of 74! And he still drawers, but these days, he does it for a hobby, selling beautiful paper doll books inspired by the golden age of Hollywood. Thank you so much for posting this. I will send it to my dad. He will be thrilled!
Wow, thank you so much for commenting, and I’m so glad to hear your dad is still drawing – his illustrations are wonderful. It’s a shame those adverts don’t tend to credit the artist. I will scan any more I come across in the future and let you know!
