Ultra Violet Mini Spring Collection - Fashion Illustrations of the Day (Watercolour + Markers)

Easter weekend is upon us, so I'll keep this post short and sweet. These five designs are just something I came up with lately. To be honest, I'm not sure will I be able to make any of them. My sewing skills are pretty basic, but I did manage to make a few dresses in the past. However, until I buy myself a sewing machine, I probably won't do that much sewing as sewing by hand takes forever. However, one never knows. It is not completely out of the question. I might find time to transfer some of my designs from paper to real life. 

It would be lovely to make my fashion illustrations come to life. Fingers crossed. The inspiration for this mini collection was ultra violet. The medium is watercolour and markers on paper. First I applied a layer of watercolour and then I added the finishing touches using a purple and pink markers. If you scroll down, you'll be able to see how it went (and you can see how the painting had looked before I added the finishing touches). My fashion illustrations usually come with drawn faces and hairstyles, sometimes even make up because I love drawing details, but it is kind of fun to see them like in the basic form as well.  I wish I always remembered to take photographs of the drawing/painting process! How do you like these fashion illustrations? Would you wear these designs? That would be all for today. Have a lovely Easter weekend!

  5. All illustrations are beautiful! xx

  6. I hate to say this Ivana but its hard for me to read the post cos I'm stuck on looking at the images. This has got to be the very vest illustrations you've produced and I am truly blown away by how amazing it is. Perhaps because you used my favorite color? Each figure is unique and fabulous and I just can't get enough. I wish I could wave a wand and bring each and every one of them to live! Good job Ivana and happy Easter to you!!

  7. Bellissimo colore ed interpretazioni
    Buona Pasqua cara Ivana

  8. Dear Ivana, I love every single desing of your ultra violet spring collection! And I'm convinced if you would have a sewing machine you would sew them all! I'm really impressed you managed it already to sew some dresses by hand as I know sewing by hand takes forever. I got from my grandma a sewing machine for my first wedding and I'm still happy I own this machine. I sewed a lot in the past but I have to admit my sewing skills are pretty bad as I'm not correct and maybe "too creative" in this context. Nevertheless I change my clothes when necessary and patch broken clothing what at least mostly works as good as I need it :) Happy Easter, dear Ivana, enjoy it!

  20. I just love the ultra violet shades you used here and the designs just catch my eyes and make me feel peaceful. Something about the purple! Yes, please do show your step-by-step process as that would be interesting to note and appreciate. I would wear these dresses especially if they're made of light fabric as the summer here is quite killer! Thank you for sharing your fashion illustration, Ivana :) I love your passion :)

  21. Hey Ivana, love the result and the way you show us different shades of the same color, it really caught my eye and I really like the color purple because it has like a magical essence no other color has. And it would be amazing if you could bring your designs to real life! I'm sure you're more than capable to do it!


  22. nice one...again.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
