Avant Garde

José Ferrand is the talented designer behind this circa 1956 deep pink creation released in 1999. Whenever I hear the term “Avant Garde” I think back to one of my early font favorites as a young designer. But I digress...

From the story card:

The Avant Garde Gallery was crammed with the elite of the art world for the opening night of their new exhibit. However, among the tuxedoed men and gowned ladies, no one could deny that Gene’s choice of attire was a work of art in itself. The sleeves that floated above her elbows seemed to defy gravity, carefully hung like the framed artwork that adorned the walls. Gene sipped a glass of champagne. Since she painted as a hobby, the works of art that surrounded her made her eager to leave the party and get back to her own easel. She could imagine her first show, seeing her landscapes and still lifes framed and hanging on the gallery walls…

This outfit could have been “plussed” if it had included a miniature piece of art from the exhibit. But just a minor suggestion, as the outfit itself has no problem standing alone. To see more Gene Marshall photos, visit my regular website.
