Designer Jonathan Rachman exhibits the work of Gladys Perint Palmer


Interior designer Jonathan Rachman will be bringing the work of renowned fashion illustrator Gladys Perint Palmer (GPP) to his showroom, J.Rachman, starting Wednesday, October 18.


The exhibition will launch with a party celebrating Palmer’s work. On that evening, sponsored by California Home+Design, Rachman will also host Susie Hoimes, proprietor of MDVII, a vintage jewelry collection, and Margot Lar, an artist who creates distinctive hand-painted glassware.  

GPP’s distinctive illustrations not only capture the clothes by designers such as Missoni, Givenchy, Chanel and Oscar de la Renta; they also display the spirit of the notables who wear them. She’s created portraits of celebrities such as Princess Diana, Nadja Auermann and Julien Macdonald, as well as local luminaries such as Denise Hale, Anne Getty and Dodie Rosecrans.

 Her work will be on display and offered for sale at the showroom, which is known for bespoke artwork, antiques and hand-picked treasures. This is not the first time the paths of GPP and Rachman have crossed. She is the Executive Vice President of Artistic Development at Academy of Art University, and he was once her student. 

 “It is delightful to link up with Jonathan. His space and his taste level are superb. His enthusiasm is contagious,” notes GPP. Rachman adds: “As her student, I was always in awe of GPP’s technique in illustration and her ability to bring any subject’s personality to life. As a designer, I am even more in awe of how her work is always so chic and preciously unique. I am honored and thrilled to represent her work in San Francisco, welcoming my teacher, mentor and an icon!”
