My Fashion Illustration of the Day (Watercolour on paper, Illustrating a Look from Chanel Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Worn by Kaia Gerber))



Time for another fashion illustration of mine. This time I  illustrated by a catwalk look. As I told you, recently I finally got the change to catch up with some of the collections I wanted to see. Last Saturday I have spent an entire day watching fashion shows and illustrating looks that caught my eye the most. Now, it's time to show you some of them and why not start with this one?  This look was worn by Kaia Gerber in Chanel Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 Ready To Wear Collection.


It is a wonderful design to illustrate. The dress itself is very elegant and classical. Black lace dress is always a nice choice. The accessories for this look are very interesting,  an oversize rose pink bag with a print and long gloves in a hot pink shade. Do you like it? Have you had the chance to see this  collection yet? If yes, how did you like it?

The medium for this one is pencil and watercolour on paper. I'm not sure will I keep the outline I made with the pencil or I will delete it. I'm also considering filling in the outline with a marker or a coloured pencil in a shade of the skin. So many ideas, so little time! Maybe I will add some finishing touches to this illustration, maybe not. I'll keep you posted. I did enjoy illustrating this look. This LBD is absolutely beautiful. I used two layers of watercolour on the additional (peplum) lace layer of the dress because when lace is layered  on lace, there is always a darkening effect. I tried to make the lace details visible, but not too detailed.

Illustrating fashion is always an interesting experience. There are so many different styles when it comes to fashion illustrations. Some are more true to body's proportions (anatomical), some are more stylized (idolized). After tackling fashion illustration for a few years I seem to have developed a preference for elongated necks and legs. Maybe I could even call it my style. Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!

  3. Hello Ivana, finally had time to make a stop in Moda Odaradosti and it is always great to see that your creativity is always pumping out :)

    I totally love this artwork for many reasons: for the way you combined real flowers with the drawing and because I totally admire Kaia and how she's ruling the fashion world, by the way Chanel catwalks are always full of details and I would say this brand is the one that still amaze all of us with their venues and set ups!

    I need to point out that you did a great job with the texture of the dress, I can really see the folds, the creases and the transparency of the dress! NICE WORK!

    I'm gonna stop by the other posts ;)

    Best from Spain,

  7. I love how you've managed to still display some detail of the lace dress, even while using watercolour - that's so impressive, Ivana! I agree the bright and bold accessories are quite surprising, although in a strange way, I'm loving those extra long hot pink gloves. They're unexpected and beautiful!! Hope you have a lovely week ahead :)

  12. You did a wonderful job illustrating this lace black dress that Kaia wore. The pink gloves are a nice touch! Chanel is a brand that never disappoints and always impresses on the runway for fashion week. You did a fantastic job!

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.

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
