Biography

Catherine Marioton was born in Paris in 1901. She began drawing at a very early age and said "drawing was as natural as breathing to me."

 

She very quickly developed her talent as a fashion illustrator, and chronicled 1920's French fashions for magazines such as Art Goût Beauté  and Art de la mode. She said in an interview in 1994 that "whilst walking in Paris or on a trip to Normandy, I would think about clothes and make up scenes with people wearing them."

 

Sadly her very successful career as a sought after fashion illustrator was brought to a premature close on her marriage in 1927 - "that's how things were when you married, you did not work."

 

She is also quoted as saying in a magazine interview in 1994  "that it had been fascinating for me as a young girl to see the Paris fashion world first hand."

 

Catherine Marioton died in 1995.
