Today’s post is all about fashion illustration which I haven’t really touched on at Red Riot but it is a huge passion of mine. Unfortunately my people drawing skills go about as far as a stick man so I couldn’t ever create something as beautiful as these images but I do love to look at a lot of illustration work. I think especially fashion illustration always seems quite dark to me and mysterious which I find very interesting. I would love to feature some more of it here on my blog so if you like this post then please let me know b y giving it a like and you will see a lot more posts dedicated to this type of subject!
Now enough of that mumbo jumbo onto the very talented designer that I am featuring today – Laura Laine. Laura is a Helsinki based illustrator. She has studied fashion design at University of Art and Design Helsinki, but during her studies focused on fashion illustration. After completing her studies she has been working full-time as a freelance illustrator and is also teaching fashion illustration at the university.
Not only does she have some incredible portfolio work on her website but it has been recognised by some of the biggest fashion and design people around, and with her ever growing client base I’m sure she her work will be seen pretty much everywhere soon! Her recent clients include Vogue Nippon, GAP, I.T. store, Elle, Zara, Telegraph, Rad Hourani, The New York Times T magazine, Tommy Hilfiger, Muse magazine, The Guardian, I.T. Post magazine, Iben Hoej, and Daniel Palillo. She has also exhibited in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
So all thats left to say really is that I am a huge fan and I hope you are too! If anyone has any other fashion illustrators they think I should have a look at then i’d love to hear them!
