Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex Fashion & Disco is a time capsule of Paris and New York between 1969 and 1973, as viewed through the eyes of Antonio Lopez (1943–1987), the premiere fashion illustrator of the time. A Puerto Rico native raised in the Bronx, Lopez was a seductive arbiter of style and glamour who, beginning in the 1960s, brought elements of the urban street to a postwar fashion world desperate for change and diversity. Counted among Lopez’s muses—or “discoveries”—were iconic beauties Grace Jones, Jessica Lange, and Jerry Hall, as well as Warhol Superstars Donna Jordan, Jane Forth, and Patti D’Arbanville. Lopez’s inner circle was also comprised of Juan Ramos, his romantic and creative partner; makeup artist Corey Tippin; photographer Bill Cunningham; and rival designers Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint-Laurent. These characters and more come together to create a vivid portrait of Antonio Lopez and the revolutionary fashion world he helped create.
