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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
