Today I'm sharing a new fashion illustration with you. The medium is watercolour and markers on paper. The illustration depicts a girl wearing a red gown. I made this fashion illustration with the Chinese New Year in mind. I love the symbolism behind the colour red, so a red gown was a must. Another thing I love is this kind of dramatic and glam design, I mean what lady doesn't like over the top gowns with lots of details? This kind of dresses are enough to make us feel like princesses and queens, and we all need that once in a while. This red gown also has flare (transparent) sleeves because I've been really into flare style lately.
I wouldn't mind owing a dress like this one. Maybe I'll make it some day. Who knows? Lately my eye wonders everything I pass by a textile/fabric shop. I'm always tempted to go in and buy tons of materials and fabrics, but I won't do that until I'm certain that I can commit to it. Making a dress is a very time-consuming process and I hate being wasteful so I will only buy a material if I'm certain that I will be able to make something out of it. Are you the same way? Anyhow, originally I planned to share this fashion illustration at the start of the Lunar year this Friday but I wasn't able to do it. I hope I'm not too late to wish you a Happy Lunar/Chinese Year. Thank you for reading. Have a lovely week everyone!
