Tangerine Fringe

Current Cravings

This illustration features a look from Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2022 collection. Something about fringe screams joy to me. It’s almost impossible to wear a dress with fringe and NOT twirl every chance you get. I opted to go with a long braided ponytail for the hair, because it is a simple yet dramatic way to echo the movement of the fringe. Also, the dangling earrings further the feeling of movement in the illustration.

By the way, I am working on an illustrated e magazine. The magazine is my visual love letter to all of the divine and craveable fashion, beauty and decor trends that inspire me. The magazine will include: (1) high-fashion, concept driven editorial illustrations; (2) illustrated style guides; (3) illustrations featuring fresh-off-the-runway trends; and (4) profiles on fashion muses, past and present.

I created this illustration as an example of the type of work I will include in the magazine. The first issue is slated to be available for purchase Spring 2023. If you would like to know exactly when the e magazine will be available, sign up for my email list here. Although this image will not appear in the inaugural issue, prints of this illustration are available for purchase in my Etsy store.

One more thing… you can support this project by supporting me on Patreon. On Patreon, I provide my supporters with behind-the-scenes access by sharing sketches and some sneak peeks at illustrations I’m currently working on. Also, depending on the membership level selected, at least once a month I share the process (from sketch to completed illustration) that led to the final version of an illustration that will appear in the magazine. You can learn more details about what I share with my Patreon supporters here.

Runway Look: Tom Ford Spring 2019

Current Cravings

Tom Ford’s Spring 2019 show featured looks that were a drastic departure from the bold and bright animal prints that were the centerpiece of his Fall 2018 collection. This illustration features two of my favorite looks from the show: a leopard print jacket paired with a silk fringe skirt and a black caped gown belted with a faux croc corset. The mix of animal prints with luxe fabrics and textures, all in a paired down color palette, creates looks that are undeniably sophisticated and sexy. And that’s the aesthetic that we come to expect from Tom Ford.
