Design firm Landor Associates recently launched an exhibition in their lobby featuring the work of local fashion illustrator Anne Wainscott.
Landor Associates, a leading strategic brand consulting and design firm, is proud to present ‘Inspired by Anne’ a Cincinnati Fashion Week exhibition honoring the work of Anne Wainscott, fashion illustrator for Shillito’s
Department Store and the Cincinnati Enquirer, for nearly five decades.
Ms. Wainscott is a
highly regarded and prolific fashion expressionist, compiling thousands
of drawings and paintings, which appeared in the
Cincinnati Enquirer, Times Star, Post and various trade
journals. Before the 1970’s and during the height of Ms. Wainscott’s
career, the responsibility of a fashion illustrator was integral to the
publishing and advertising worlds until photography became a more
widely accepted medium.
The exhibition of
Wainscott’s work will appear inside Landor’s lobby, and as a fashion
installation in the windows that grace Race Street from April 21
through the end of July.
There will be a grand opening party from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. on Wednesday
April 21, 2010 at Landor, located on the corner of Race and 7th Street
(110 Shillito Pl.). Landor is one of the city’s largest employers of
creative talent, with offices occupying what was once Shillito’s, the
powerhouse department store of downtown Cincinnati.
commented, ”It is wonderful to see my work reappear in the Shillito’s
building; the same place where it was originally created.”
