FASHION ILLUSTRATION, A DRESS FROM VALENTINO SPRING 2019 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

Hello darlings! Right now I feel so high on that fashion week adrenaline, that's all I seem to think about. Does that ever happen to you? The fashion shows I have seen so far have all been fabulous. There are so many dresses and designs that I want to illustrate and I  think I have picked the perfect look to start with. Today I'm back with another fashion illustration. I already illustrated one of Valentino's dresses (here you can see my illustration from Valentino Couture 2019 collection), but today I decided to illustrate another runaway looks of theirs and this time from Ready to Wear 2019 collection. This deep V neck dress caught my eye instantly, and I just knew I had to illustrate it. Moreover, the model that wore is incredibly beautiful. Scroll down to find out more about this fashion art of mine. 





I don't know if you have noticed, but fashion illustrators have gone head over heals with Pierpaolo Piccioli and his Spring collection. His couture 2019 collection for Valentino is the talk of the town. I follow a lot of fashion illustrators and my feed is literally filled with Valentino's illustrations right now. I saw a lot of fashion illustrators illustrate the dress I illustrated a few days ago (and I understand why, it is a great dress to draw). I don't remember seeing them this excited about a show. Everyone is praising Pierpaolo Piccioli and the designs he has created for Valentino. Not just the fashion illustrators and artist but the industry itself. There is a lot of talk about this designer and his collections in fashion publications. What to say? It seems like the house of Valentino is lucky to have him. I couldn't resist illustration his designs, either. Scroll down to see the making of  process. 









Now, a few words about my fashion illustration. The medium is oil pastels on mixed media paper. I used a mixed media paper from brand Strathmore (not sponsored) and pastels from brand Russian art brand Sonet (not sponsored either). I actually got both the pastels and the paper as a gift. I already used this paper to illustrate Natalia Lialina (check out her blog IN THE WRITER'S CLOSET here), who is also the person who gifted the Strathmore art block to me. 

I have to say that these mix media art block has proven to be exceptional. I used this paper to create anything from pencil drawings, aquarelle to acrylic paintings and they have always served me well. This was the first time I used these pastels, though. I don't typically paint or draw with pastels, I might have tried it a few times but not with real ones and not seriously. In fact, I don't think I really used pastels ever since I was a kid. These oil pastels as a gift from another Russian friend, and so far I really love them. I hope I'll be able to find Sonet in stores. If I continue to work with pastels, I'm definitely sticking with this brand. 



Now  that we have got technical details out of the way, let's talk a bit about the person I illustrated. The model is Assa Barjadi. She is utterly gorgeous, isn't she? A lot of illustrators don't even draw the face, and I do get because the focus in a fashion illustration has to be on the clothes. Moreover, I doubt that real fashion designers have the time to draw faces, not unless they want the face to be the part of the message. That's what I want to, and that si why I always do take the time to draw the face. For me the person wearing the clothes is just as interesting as the clothes themselves.

  3. It's funny because when we started the blog, my mom never wanted to smile because she said the emphasis should be on the clothing. Yet I love how the clothing can make us feel so happy. And I love how exuberant you are about the latest fashions, Ivana!!

  6. It's wonderful that you like the designs and that you feel so inspired. Your drawing is beautiful. You really have a unique take on the dress and I love that you add the face to your drawings. I agree that often the person wearing the clothes may be the focal point just like the clothes.

How do you managed to many creative stuff? You're a hero to me :)

  39. Dear Ivana, you get better and better! Wow, this illustration is perfect and you got a fantastic inspiration! But I have to admit I can't remember I ever watched a fashion show on TV or on the Internet :) I visited only once in my life a realy fashion show as our son gifted on Christmas of 2017 my husband and cards for a fashion show in Munich. It was nice but I assume not that perfect and professional as the fashion shows of the true designers you watch. Have a nice weekend!

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: INSPIRED BY SUMMER STYLE

Time for another FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY! Today I'll share four fashion illustrations with you. The medium for all these four illustrations is coloured pencils on A4 regular printing paper.  The materials used weren't anything fancy, but I still wanted to share these. I drew two of these sketches without a specific reference. The outfits illustrated were a product of my imagination. However, the other two fashion illustrations were drawn with a reference. I was inspired by two fashion bloggers and I drew the summer outfits they were wearing. The illustrations are drawn in classical proportions, not elongated ones that I often use for fashion sketches. I do draw in different styles, sometimes the choice of style depends on the artistic effect I'm going to and sometimes just on  my mood (especially when I'm not doing anything particulary ambitious).

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
