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.

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…

HOW TO WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 




ACCESSORIZING WITH SCARVES
A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…
