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 :)

  9. Sei stata davvero brava, Ivana! rendere la trasparenza ed il motivo del pizzo non è affatto semplice, ma tu ci sei riuscita benissimo!

  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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
