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

PRINT – ways to wear it.

In my last post I looked at Diane Von Furtsenburg, Givenchy and L.A.M.B’s printed creations for Spring/Summer 2011, and although they are beautiful most of us can’t afford designer :P.  So in this post I’m looking at affordable ways to wear this seasons print-trend.


Printed t-shirt, £15, black and white Aztec print leggings (Oh-so Givenchy! Check out my previous post) £26 both from URBANOUTFITTERS.co.uk.

Snake print headband, £6.99 RIVER ISLAND.  Festival bag, £20 from ASOS.com.  Elephant print TOMS from SCHUH.co.uk (soooo cute! I love elephants.)

Teaming printed leggings and accessories with a fun, laid back t-shirt is a perfect look for daytime.  You could also dress up the leggings with a pair of wedges and some tribal jewellery.


Aztec print top, £16 and printed skirt £34.99 both from TOPSHOP.  Black wedge sandals £90 from FLY London at SCHUH.co.uk.  Woven navajo backpack £46 from URBANOUTFITTERS.co.uk.  Printed headband, £3.99 from NEW LOOK.

I really like this as an outfit,  I would wear it for daytime but you could dress it up by wearing a black lace top like this one from ASOS.com:

Hope this post was helpful and inspiring etc!  Went on a stylespot today and found some lovely lookin’ peeps so watch out for the ‘you’ve been BELFASHED #3’ post tomorrow.
