I’m excited to share the latest fashion illustration from my sketchbook with you today. It’s inspired by supermodels Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s Balmain looks from Paris Fashion Week. When I first saw these looks, I couldn’t wait to illustrate them. Kendall’s dress has extra volume at the hips and it reminds me of a dramatic costume from ‘The Hunger Games.’ The texture and color are so beautiful that I couldn’t get it out of my head. I also love how Gigi’s outfit is made up of color-blocked shades of blush–none of which actually match but all of which work really well together. I also love the vertical stripes in her cape.
I love the fall season for many reasons–from the beautiful changing leaves that I grew up with in upstate New York, to pumpkin-flavored lattes–but most importantly, to fashion. The past few weeks, I’ve been following fashion week runways all over the world. This week, I am living vicariously through photos of Paris Fashion Week–especially because I was there last year during this time and I feel like it was just yesterday. This week, when Smartling.com asked me to dream of what I would do if I had the opportunity to have one night abroad, I started fantasizing about being in Paris.
