Moje modne ilustracije / My fashion illustrations

Some of these illustrations (but not all) you already had the chance of seeing on my instagram profile @modaodaradosti (here).  Since I took these photographs with my camera and not my cellphone they should , at least in theory, be of better quality than those on my insta (that I have  been using via my cell so far). Not that I have to justify myself for posting my own art. If anyone is wondering, all of these are painted with watercolours of the cheapest kind. Financing your own creativity can be a pain in the ass. Another thing that sucks about painting is how draining it can be. Well, I always tell myself I can afford this one vice. Speaking of painting, I often get asked how long  have I been doing fashion illustration. The answer is ever since I can remember. 

Neke od ovih ilustracija (ali ne sve) već ste mogli vidjeti na mome instagram profilu @modaodaradosti (here).  S obzirom da vam ovo slikala fotoaparatom, a ne mojim mobitelom, ove bi fotografije , barem u teoriji, trebale biti bolje kvalitete nego one na insta profilu koji koristim samo preko mobitela. Nije da se trebam opravdavati zašto objavljujem svoju umjetnost. Ukoliko nekoga zanima, sve su ove naslikane s vodenim bojama najjeftinije marke. Financirati svoju kreativnost je često poprilično naporno. Još jedna stvar koja je naporna što se tiče slikanja je to koliko energije oduzima. No uvijek si kažem, mogu si priuštiti taj jedan porok. Kad smo već kod te teme, često me pitaju koliko dugo radim modne ilustracije. Odgovor je otkada se god sjećam.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…


Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…


A surprising number of people are under the false impression that you have to spend a lot of money in order to dress in a sustainable way. The good news is that sustainable fashion does't have to be expensive or difficult.  You can help the environment just by shopping your closet more. As easy as that! Shopping your closet and taking good care of your clothing are wonderful and easy ways to be more sustainable. Do you know what is the best thing about these two ecologically friendly fashion strategies? They don't cost you anything. By maximizing the usage of items in your closet and learning how to properly care for your clothing items, you can both help the environment and your personal finances. I already addressed this topic in my last post, when I showed you fourteen ways to wear one basic item. Relying on our wardrobe essentials is such an effortless way to be more green in our fashion choices. 
Take this white pencil skirt for example. It belonged to my mother when she…
