Fashion illustrations!

Hey everyone, sorry for not posting yesterday; I’ve just started a seriiiious essay which is due in on Tuesday (eek!) silly me always leaving everything to the last minute.  Anyway, because the essay is about fashion I thought I might let you have a little look at the essay plan.  I like drawing things and using colour and spider diagrams to get my brain going.

As you can see I’ve chosen to write my essay on PRADA’s S/S collection :).  I got the idea to use fashion illustration from the website http://www.gattobravo-mia.com  (I’ve posted some of their illustrations here.

Just a few more illustrations of the collection.

Hope you liked these as I was thinking of doing them as a regular thing.  I need to build up my illustration anyway and I really enjoy it :).

Let me know what you think!  Nuala xo

Tutti-Frutti prints for summertime.

This season, Carmen Miranda inspired prints exploded on to the Catwalk (don’t know who Carmen Miranda is? I didn’t either until I typed her name into google images http://tinyurl.com/43f5nt3‘ohhh yeaaah that fruit-head lady!’)

Banana print was featured in PRADA’s 2011 spring/summer show (if you can’t tell already, I love PRADA.)

I came across a fashion illustration blog called www.gattobravo-miao.com,  it’s so cute check it out.  Here’s their interpretation of PRADA’s fruit prints:

I want to start illustrating my favorite catwalk shows – it looks like so much fun!

Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer collection featured zesty citrus fruits.

 Fruit print is now on the high-street (: – here’s a few I like.

Banana print T-shirt, £18.00 from ASOS.com and lemon print prom dress, £29.99 from NEW LOOK.

Banana print shorts, £12.00 from TOPSHOP.


Lemon ‘fruit post’ earrings (they also come in apple and strawberry!), £6.50, URBAN OUTFITTERS.  Banana earrings, £6.00, TOPSHOP.

Hope you liked these tutti-frutti treats.  Watch out for my next post!

STRIPES – The Inspiration.

Stripes were all over the catwalk this season – but not just your plain old breton stripe.  This spring the classic pattern has got a re-vamp, and I love it!

Inspiration #1 PRADA

Inspiration #2 JIL SANDER

Inspiration #3  MOSCHINO

Inspiration # 4 SONIA RYKIEL

OHHH I’m drooling.  Look out tomorrow for my favourite stripes on the highstreet this season!  Hope you like my inspiration (:!
