Andy Warhol and the Fashion World
Before he found fame as the father of Pop Art, Andy Warhol was an accomplished advertising illustrator and commercial artist for fashion tastemakers such as Barney's, Neiman Marcus, I. Miller, Glamour, Mademoiselle, and Harper's Bazaar.

In 1945, Andy was accepted to the Carnegie Institute of Technology (known today as the Carnegie-Mellon University). While on summer break, he worked at a prestigious department store creating window displays, "When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums." It was there that he was introduced to the world of high fashion, which would later influence his interest in becoming an illustrator. Carnegie Tech nurtured Andy’s keen sense of design and visual creativity. In New York, armed with a portfolio of samples, Andy sought work as an illustrator and quickly was hired by major magazines like Glamour, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar. Throughout the 1950s he created a prolific number of fashion ads, books, record albums and many other promotional items. He also worked to create innovative advertisements for I.Miller, a popular shoe company. From his background in advertising, he was well-groomed for the 1960s art world.

After a decade of breaking barriers as a Pop artist, Warhol decided to create Interview magazine In 1969, which became one of the most influential publications of the time. Documenting the cultural climate, Warhol incorporated fashion, art, and of course, the cult of celebrity. Through Interview, Warhol forged personal relationships with many fashion designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent, while models like Jerry Hall and Bianca Jagger appeared regularly throughout its pages. He dined with Diana Vreeland, shopped with Halston in London and partied with Diane Von Furstenberg. Everyone from designers to socialites vied to have their portrait painted by him.
