Leon Benigni was a fashion illustrator and graphic designer who worked with fashion designers such as Jeanne Lanvin, Marcel Rochas, Elsa Schiparelli, Lucien Lelong, Jacques Fath, Jean Patou, Nina Ricci, and Cristobal Balenciaga. In addition he worked closely with fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Modes et Travaux, and Femina, both for editorial and magazine covers, creating bold Art Deco influenced fashion illustrations, capturing the sophistication and glamour of the period. His many travel posters of this period advertising spas and resorts in France also uniquely captured the spirit of the 1920s and 30s.
