Fashion Week Illustrations

Practising drawing is an important thing of being a fashion designer – it’s with the pencil/mouse and colours that you express and convey your ideas. Feeling inspired to draw is fundamental, when it comes to doing beautiful work, and taking a look at the new creations from fashion week is a way of obtaining fresh inspiration for some fashion week illustrations. I did my research looking at all the fashion shows from London, Milan, Paris and New York, and these 4 styles are some of my favourites. When I attend fashion shows or scroll through them online, colour is always something that catches my eye; that and something quirky. I love things that are quirky and have an edge.

Fashion designer Daria Stravinsky

During Monte Carlo Fashion Week ss16, I was lucky to run into one of Russia’s rising fashion talents; fashion designer Daria Stravinsky. She’s sweet, pretty, nice, hardworking, professional, inspiring, and pregnant – wauw! It’s hard to write about all her initiatives in little space, but to keep it short, she has her own fashion brand that takes its name after her: Dasha Stravinsky. As she describes below, one of her great passions is prints, which plays an important role in her collections, and they’re all made by Daria. Her profile caught the attention of Carlo Ramello, historical fur brand, and she became one of the young talents that he collaborates with. At the moment, she’s presenting her collection in his multi-brand boutique in Monte Carlo and San Remo. A part from having her own fashion brand, Daria is engaged in a lot of other exciting projects. Just have a read on the About page of her website, and you get an instant feel of the passion behind the work, and the curiosity to think and …
