Lashes Two Feet Long!

Long and exaggerated bodies, the definition of fashion illustrations, but a new name to the Illustrators roster  Elena Sofia Tinis, gives her figures a little more attitude in the eyes, noses and butts!  See More After the Jump

Too Pretty On Paper.



I came accross a Muse Magazine spread featuring some of Spring’s hottest shoes, handbags and animated sketches of women inserted into each image.  The work of illustrator Laura Laine, was enlisted to create an interaction between her characters and some fashion accessories. This is one of several projects that feature the sexy, slim women with beautiful hair, some women can only wish for.  




Born in Finland 1983, Laura Laine has been able to work with some of fashion’s and media’s top names like Tommy Hilfiger, New York Times Magazine, Vive La Mode Magazine, Escada and Zara.

There’s are so many talented fashion illustrators out there, I’m always glad to come across one that can makes me do a double take. Let’s give a nod to a young talent that still has much more to show us.

Fashion Illustration: A Disappearing Art.

Illustrator Andy Warhol

It originated with drawing and painting.  Once upon a time, Fashion Illustration was commissioned by fashion magazines as part of an editorial feature, a form of advertising or promoting a collection by fashion designers or department stores.

If you were to pursue a career in Fashion Design, as a student, several Fashion Illustration classes were on the required syllabus.  This form of art, that has been around for 500 years is slowly disappearing before our eyes.

Living in an era, where time means money, speeding up the process of creating a garment and getting it to the masses can easily be done by computers, and could cost much less once applied correctly.

Illustrations were solely used on fashion magazines, until the 1930s when Vogue use it’s first photographic image.  It has gone from being a major way of communicating fashion to now playing a minor role.

Artists like Andy Warhol (1928-1987),  Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Tanya Ling, Ruben Toledo, Julie Verhoeven  plus many more, have worked for almost every major international fashion magazine and fashion business including Barneys, Dolce and Gabbana, Oscar De La Renta and Mulberry.

I would like to give a nod to a professor that opened my eyes and taught me more about F.I.T, than anyone else.

I had the pleasure of having Professor Renaldo Barnette, at Fashion Institute Of Technology, taught me for four years. He graded your drawing ability and lowered a grade if mistakes were made, always pushing you until you’re at your best.

Thank you Prof. Barnette for helping me understand that this isn’t just drawing but a form of art that should be respected.
