Hello darlings. Today I'm back with another fashion drawing. This time I was inspired by Valentino Spring 2019 couture collection. My verdict? Pierpaolo Piccioli has created a truly breath-taking collection! Have you per chance seen it? It's all over social media. I think it's great that people are getting that excited about couture fashion again. I do like couture fashion. The best couture collections always make you feel like you have stepped into a fairy tale. In addition, it is fascinating to see all those magnificent gowns, isn't it? I suppose part of couture's appeals lies into recreating that 'modern princess' feeling. When you look at a couture collection, you can be pretty sure that these are some carefully constructed garments. You know you're seeing gowns and creations that someone has put so much effort into. I do enjoy seeing couture collections mainly because they are often very theatrical, both in design and in feeling. It is not so much the dresses itself that I want to own, as much as I just enjoying seeing them. I suppose these dresses just give me that feeling of being lost in a fairy tale.
What about you? Do you like couture fashion? Who is your favourite couture designer? I'm not sure I have a favourite, but this Valentino collection has certainly caught my eye. The gorgeous silhouettes, the vibrant colours and the abundance of ruffles all joined to make me feel like I have stepped in fashion heaven. I should draw more of this collection! A lot of illustrators are drawing Naomi right now. She sure did look gorgeous in this Valentino couture show. I'm a nineties kid and Naomi Campbell is the first supermodel I ever remember hearing about. She was the super star in the nineties. As everyone else, I adored her. However, ever since I've learned of the fact that she has psychically attacked and injured so many women, I've never thought of her in the same way. I don't think someone should get away with something like that just because they are famous. Maybe that is why I've never illustrated her, even if I happen to think she's gorgeous. Instead I illustrated Adut Akech, who also happens to be the model of 2019. Doesn't she look like an angel in this pink gown? Such a beauty!
