    Abstract

    An article exploring Ignasi Monreal's digital paintings which formed the basis of a major advertising campaign by Gucci in 2018. His work was placed in the broader context of fashion illustration and its relationship with photography and asked why so little fashion illustration has explored the potential of narrative in the way that other areas of fashion marketing have, such as photography, shows and films. The article discusses Monreal's narrative based work and his approach to appropriation.
