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.

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…

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

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 …

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. 

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.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …
