Fashion 2 Illustration

If I had to pick one talent to have that I currently do not possess, it's the talent of being able to illustrate the most fabulous fashion designs seen on the runways of couture, RTW & resort. Each time I see new work of some of my favorite illustrators or discover a new one whose work I love, I get mesmerized by the oodle amounts of talent they possess. Just look at the attention to detail of the designs when looking at the actual picture to the illustration- I'm often more drawn to the art work. The colors, textures and shading are breathtaking when they all come together in the final design. 
So for now, I will just look and appreciate the beauty of other's talents and imagine one day being where maybe, just maybe I will be able to draw half as good as these talented ladies.

  1. Oh gosh, these girls are so talented. I really hope they have great commercial success - I've been following Kelly Smith for some time now.

  2. Have you ever thought about taking classes or trying to learn from sketch books? I never thought that I had an ounce of drawing talent in me... until I attended a fashion design school where I learned that with enough passion and dedication, I could actually draw pretty decently {not that my skills are anywhere near what you have pictured above, but still!} xoxoxo brynn
