I was so excited to attend an exclusive Fashion Art Preview for bloggers yesterday, showcasing the artwork of the legendary Bob Mackie, who has adorned the most glamorous women in the world with his glitzy designs. Some of his most famous theatrical costumes have been worn by Katy Perry, Beyonce, Madonna, Pink, Diana Ross, Cher, Tina Turner, and Barbra Streisand.
The costume illustrations, which were on display at the Bob Mackie Design Group’s corporate office, consist of 46 illustrated reproductions of the designer’s most whimsical and imaginative designs over the past four decades. I was left awestruck as I walked around the room looking at all the amazing sketches, while munching on yummy Popchips and drinking refreshing Izze beverages provided at the event.
All of the illustrations come matted and framed, and are available in two sizes, 14″x17″ and 21″x25.” Don’t miss your opportunity to own a timeless piece from the art collection available to the public now. Click here to view all of the illustrations and purchase your favorites!
At the event, I was delighted to be given the opportunity to select my favorite piece as a special gift from Mr. Mackie. I chose the beautiful Floradora Girls “Poppy” (shown below), which is part of a series of sketches done for the 1975 Las Vegas production spectacle “Hallelujah Hollywood.” You can purchase it here.
In addition to the illustratons, Mr. Mackie also has a popular Barbie collection; designs gowns and suits for private clients; has a line of home furnishings; and, a “WearableArt” fashion line sold on QVC.
