Stopped by for a quick lunch at BG Restaurant the other day and was greeted by a blast from the past. Works Tony Viramontes, visionary 80’s fashion illustrator, peppered the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman. Tony was a Mexican American L.A. born artist whose vibrant style was seen in works for YSL, Versace, Valentino, Montana, Vogue and Per Lui, just to name a few. Outside of fashion he illustrated the cover of Janet Jackson’s album Control. I have always admired his work but have never seen it in person so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them at Bergdorf. His works are so difficult to find due to his passing at such a young age, he died at age 31.
