FASHION SKETCH: KENDALL JENNER & GIGI HADID

Gigi and Kendall Paris Fashion Week Illustration

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. 

ONE NIGHT ABROAD: MONOCHROME

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.
