‘UN PEU PLUS’ by Helga Björnsson: Everything You’d Expect From Fashion Designs

Published March 20, 2015

Fashion designer and costume maker Helga Björnsson was a student of haute couture with Louis Féraud in Paris. Her sketches are on display at the Museum of Design and Applied Art and are exactly what you think fashion designs should be–minimally drawn female models that make Barbie look proportionate, beneath enormous clothes drawn in pencil with messy colours spilling over the lines. They are certainly beautiful and may make you think of Audrey Hepburn in a tiara holding a cigarette holder.
