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.

    It is always a pleasure to come back to your blog and get inspired with your drawings, I feel like you have improved a lot and that is thanks not only to talent but also to the dedication and the hard work you put into your daily creativity activities...congrats on that! How do you managed to many creative stuff? You're a hero to me :)

    I loved your interpretation of Valentino, this brand is like a dream coming to the real life with vaporous dresses and all those delicate textures! I also want to add that I prefer the color you chose over the original, yours have more magical feelings *___*

  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!

  51. heal from broken heart" I wish I could find the right words to say how thankful I am to this love spell caster called Dr Ahmed for bringing back my husband after he left me and our 3 kids for another woman, after 12years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but I could not control the pain that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because I was really in love with my husband. Every day and night I think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a (Love spell) for me. 18 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pains he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than how it was before, all thanks to Dr Ahmed he is so powerful and I decided to share my story on the internet that Dr Ahmed real and powerful spell caster who I will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now. Here’s his contact:

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…
