Gladys Perint Palmer

Gladys Perint Palmer, Executive Director of the School of Fashion at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, is not only a journalist and illustrator but also a living legend. I met her ten years ago in my first season as Fashion Editor for Russian Vogue in Paris (below is an illustration she did of me around that time). In 1998, The Fashion Book (Phaidon Press) named GPP one of 500 people of influence in fashion since 1860 and in 2003, Assouline published Fashion People, a book of her drawings. This season Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is using her fashion illustrations for all of their Fall 2011 graphics.
