Fashion Illustrations with Kelly Love

I can't describe how much I've enjoyed creating illustrations inspired by Kelly Love's a/w15 collection.  I created the most amazing mood board, full of kinfolk imagery, Scandi-minimalism, pastel shades, windswept landscapes.  Now I just want to paint covers for novels like Sunset Song and Wuthering Heights.

Editorial Illustrations for German Wings

If you're flying with German Wings over the festive period, have a look at the in-flight magazine.  You'll find a 5-page article illustrated by moi, "Spaß im Schnee", or "Fun in the Snow". I was asked to mix my illustrations with photography, showing alternative activities in the snow.  It was good to do something a little different.

Here's the magazine, and a better look at the images:

Illustrated packaging with Links of London and Harrods.

A couple of weekends ago, I was delighted to be drawing in-house at Harrods. I was invited by Links of London to create bespoke, hand-drawn packaging to celebrate their 25th anniversary.  Throughout their anniversary campaign, Links had used the London skyline and wanted to keep this theme for their Harrods events, although we threw in some lovely Harrods-inspired designs too.

AND, next weekend, 27th-29th November, I'll be back at Harrods for their Black Friday 10% off weekend. Come and find me and say hello. 

Here's a few pictures of my handiwork.  

and a few pictures from Harrod's instagram page:

Personal Project: Independent Fashion Illustration

Today is the last day of London fashion week, and the first day of a new exciting personal project for me.   For the next six months, inter-London fashion weeks, I'm going to be focussing on a new series of exciting, contemporary fashion illustration. 

I'll be visiting independent fashion designers in their London studios to get an insight into their inspirations and design process.  This exclusive and personal insight into their collections will allow me to work with these designers to create illustrations that capture their original vision and depict the important details and textures which form their signature style.

I'll be visiting studios with my fashionary sketchbook in hand, to take notes and keep a visual record of the shapes and important details. I'll then take these back to my studio and work these into finished illustrations.  

Since this is a personal project, I'm hoping to take more time to develop ideas, experiment and work at a bigger scale than normal.

Follow me on Instagram to see my ongoing sketches, work-in-progress and illustrations. I'll be be using the hashtag #londonfashionpeek. As I go, I'll also be writing introductions about each of the designers, to give you some background to the project.

If you're a fashion designer and would like to get involved, get in touch.
