Winter magic (my fashion illustrations of the day)/ Zimska čarolija (moje modne ilustracije dana)

My last illustration was focused on Spring. Today, my inspiration is Winter. Maxi dresses. Crazy accessories. Big sleeves. Fur coats. That calm at the end of the day. Silent nights.  Sky filled with twinkling stars. Winter magic. 

Moja zadnja ilustracija bila je u tonu proljeća. Nadahnuće za današnju je zima. Duge haljine. Ludi modni dodaci. Veliki rukavi. Krzneni kaputi. Zimska čarolija. Taj smiraj na kraju dana. Tihe noće. Nebo prekriveno zvijezdama koje sjaje. Zimska čarolija.

This illustration is actually a remake of this one. Yes, I didn't manage to salvage it. However, I managed to turn it into something else. I used only watercolours on this one, but I managed to create a collage effect. I'm not sure does this one qualified as mixed media. As you can see I added tiny bits of paper and bonded them with water and then painted on them with watercolour. So, the components are just paper, water and watercolours. How do you like this fashion illustration? Do you like this trend of big sleeves?

Ova ilustracija je zapravo prepravak ove. Da, nažalost nisam je uspjela spasiti. No, uspjela sam je pretvoriti u nešto drugo. Koristila sam samo vodene boje, ali uspjela sam stvoriti efekt kolaža. Nisam sigurna je li se ovo može nazvati mješanim medijem. Kao što vidite dodala sam male komadiće papira i povezala ih vodom i onda sam ih oslikala vodenim bojama. Tako da su u pitanju samo vodene boje, papir i voda. Kako vam se sviđa ova modna ilustracija? Sviđa li vam se ovaj trend velikih rukava?

. This illustration on the other hand is mixed media. I used red nail-polish on top of the watercolours. That would be the red part of this dress. I played with collage on this one as well. This second illustration also depicts a maxi dress but there is a fur coat on top of it. Do you like it?

 Ova ilustracija pak je mješavina medija. Koristila sam crveni lak za nokte povrh vodenih boja. I na ovoj sam se zaigrala na temu kolaža.  To bi bio crveni dio ove haljine. Druga ilustracija također prikazuje dugu haljinu, ali preko nje je i krzneni kaput. Sviđa li vam se?





  1. I love the sleeves of the blue dress! Lovely drawings :)

  2. This illustration is so beautiful. I really love it! It's great how you used mixed media items like nail polish in your work. I do like big bell sleeves. I see a lot of vintage pieces from the 80's with fantastic bubble sleeves and more flowy sleeves in boho styles. I am a huge fan of this style in design. The fur maxi dress looks so Fabulous with fur over it. You are so talented dear, can't wait to see more of your fashion illustrations. Hope you have a great week:)

    1. thank you sweetie. I'm a fan of this style as well.

  12. I really like how you added different types of media to create a 3D effect on these illustrations. The collage really adds to the visual interest of the designs. I love the remake and the transformation you made with it. The flared sleeves are a really cool detail and create a great focal point to the entire outfit.

  13. Naravno da mi se sviđa :) Tako je moćna i dramatična, ma savršena! Tvoje ideje me zaista iznova oduševljavaju, a posebno kada mešaš različite elementa, sredstva i ideje <3

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…



As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 

Once again, here is a li…
