Fashion illustration initially were drawings used only to visualize the concept of designers. Prior to this point never would I have imagined that other things could be done with it, asides gifting it as a framed picture.
Great fashion houses have been built on the creatives and ideas behind sketch books or paintings. These ones give meaning to ordinary materials or fabric with their pencils, something similar to raw gold before being refined by fire. You are probably wondering how fashion illustration relates to meeting your needs at this point.(lol)
Not till I came across items that were classy but yet so simple. Quite particular about style, I don’t believe in over doing things, even though I over-think things at times. A little here, a little there could reform and make a dull dress, interior, or personality glow.
