48 Extraordinary Vogue Covers Illustrated by Georges Lepape from between the 1910s and 1930s

Georges Lepape is a French illustrator, who was born in Paris in 1887; he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and he soon entered the world of art.

In 1911 he created the book entitled Les Choses de Paul Poiret, by illustrating the maison’s collection. His illustrations show some thin and long-limbed feminine silhouettes, whose head are wrapped into turbans. During that time, he started collaborating with La Gazette du bon ton. Georges Lepape created many sketches for some important houses of fashion, such as Lanvin, Worth and Doucet, and he created the cover pages of Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and the first British edition of Vogue; he also worked for many years with the American edition of Condé Nast.
