BIO

Angela Landels captured beautifully the essence, vibrancy and style of London fashion in the 1960s and 70s and one that made her one of the most sought after names in fashion illustration at the time. Her fashion illustrations were instantly recognisable featuring regularly in British Vogue, Harper’s & Queen, Tatler and The Times. Following Art School in 1951, Landels began her formidable career working for the advertising agencies Cole, Prentis & Varley and J Walter Thompson before being appointed Art Director at Harper’s & Queen in the 1970s. As a freelance fashion illustrator she worked regularly with luxury brands such as Austin Reed, Aquascutum and Liberty’s creating spell binding illustrations that perfectly communicated a look with sensational flair. In later life she became a highly respected portrait painter and book illustrator.
