"Unapologetic Lines" features a sizable collection of Coulon's work, including captivating portraits of fashion icons Tom Ford, Gianni Versace, Anna Wintour, Madonna and Beyoncé alongside Hollywood royalty Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen and Audrey Hepburn, among many others.
The fashion industry is enjoying a renaissance of fashion illustration, and Coulon has taken part in the renewal of the medium. Fashion illustration was found in all fashion magazines and newspapers as the major mode of advertising until it was replaced by photography from the 1960s onward. Recent trends have brought fashion illustration back into vogue with luxury brands.
