Illustrating a Catwalk Look From Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2018 (Fashion illustration of the Day: Watercolour)

Hello there! Today I will share two of my fashion illustrations with you. I illustrated two outfits from Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2018 collection. Both of these designs are predominately yellow and black. I think I see a trend here. If you recall, the last runaway fashion illustration I shared was of a black and yellow dress from Miu Miu collection. Well, if designers like the same colour combo as myself, I'm not complaining. I've always loved yellow, so I'm only happy that it's trending.

The reason why I decided to illustrate two outfits from this Louis Vuitton collection is because the collection impressed me greatly. I must admit that in the past, I didn't really pay that much attention to this brand, but this collection made me see the error of my ways. French design is often beautiful, and this collection is really top notch. As I explain, I always watch the collection I want to illustrate on YouTube, and while I was watching this one, my jaw literally dropped. In addition, I loved the way the models wore the bags the wrong way (upside down). I wonder will it become a trend?

Not only were the designs from this collection absolutely beautiful, I loved the materials used and the contrast between the refined cuts and unorthodox materials. The collection is elegant, but still very eye-catching. I had to google the designer Nicolas Ghesquière  (he is a handsome guy, isn't it?) and then I realized- Hey, wait, I know his designs. He is the guy who turned Balenciaga into what it is today. He's that guy who is known for the contrast effect. My kind of guy. Anyhow, a quick search revealed that Nicolas joined Louis Vouitton ages ago (in 2013). Ups, I guess I wasn't paying that much attention. But I'm paying attention now. It's never too late to learn something new, right? I've never claimed that I'm an expert or fashion insider of any kind, I'm just a girl who loves fashion and has managed to keep this blog active for years. Besides, there are a lot of things going on in a fashion world, it's hard to keep track. 

If I had time, I would illustrate the entire collection. Seriously, this designer knows what he is doing. Louis Vuitton brand is lucky to have him. This collection is absolutely gorgeous, do have a look at it if you have time. Who knows maybe I will find time and I will illustrate the entire collection? In the meantime, I'm sharing these two illustrations of mine. The medium is watercolour on paper. I'm not sure are they really finished or not. Sometimes it is hard to tell. I might add some finishing touches. My husband (always the critic) said that the legs on the model on the left look like two sticks. I still need to fill in one of the faces. It's possible I will give these two designs another try. I might try to illustrate them in another medium. Either way, I'll keep you posted.

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.

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…


Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…


I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
