Both illustrators will give insight into their work during the two hour sessions, which will include demonstrations of drawing for fashion and a tour of the exhibition for reference. Both sessions will be moderated by guest curator Colin McDowell.

Stipelman has worked for labels Chanel, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent and currently teaches at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Tangye’s drawings are famed for their ability to capture movement and mood. He has taught at Central St Martin’s, and is cited as an inspiration for many designers including John Galliano.
