Antonio Lopez Exhibition

Mayfair celebrates 70 years of Antonio Lopez.

Antonio López  (1943-1987) was one of the important fashion illustrators of the last century whose works dominated magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and interview throughout the 60's, 70's and 80's.
Born in Puerto Rico, Antonio moved to New York city with his family when he was 7 years old. He dropped out of the fashion institute of technology to pursue a position at Women's daily and later moved on to the New York Times.
His studio in New York, where he created works under the moniker Antonio with his partner Juan Ramos was a creative and eccentric meeting place for the glamorous group of  friends surrounding him such as Andy Warhol, grace Jones, Bill Cunningham, Jerry Hall, Jessica Lange and Karl Lagerfeld.

Till October 20th, East of Mayfair will be hosting a special seiling exhibiton of works by this legendary fashion illustrator at the Roland Mouret concept store house at 8 Carlos Place, London W1.
