His style, elegance, and mastery of mediums launched him into the fashion world’s stratosphere through collaborations with Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, New York City Opera, GQ, and Cosmopolitan. Stavrinos was posthumously inducted into the Society of Illustrators–Museum of American Illustration Hall of Fame.
