There is no debating why Marguerite Sauvage is currently a very prominent fashion Illustrator.
Her chic fashion art that incorporates a soft color pallet along with delicate line work creates a perfect image of what contemporary fashion art is. The French Illustrators work can be found in fashion and beauty magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, among many others. Sauvage’s work is based on capturing todays trendsetters and in interviews she claims her biggest source of inspiration is “everyday life”. Though her style is unique in its own right there is no doubt that her thin line work was inspired by Japanese artwork. She may have also drawn inspiration from early European art due to the fact that she grew up in Paris, once the art center of the world.
Regardless of the muses of her illustrations it is evident that her work is an exquisite mix of elegance and pop culture fashion. We are all fortunate that her illustrations aren’t limited to just spreads in fashion magazines and that her oeuvre is now available as fashion prints along with custom artwork on apparel.
Though her works are most well-known for the use in the fashion and beauty market Sauvage has also illustrated children’s books, created works for advertisements, and also has animated pieces. It is with her diverse genres of illustration that we can only hope that her success will keep her creating more delightful illustrations to adorn our favorite fashion magazines and clothing.
