Runway Look: Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018

Current Cravings

Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

I’m enamored with the direction that Maria Grazia Chiuri has taken Dior since she took the helm at the fashion house. This latest collection featured an array of ethereal chiffon and Chantilly lace dresses in nude and blush tones. Soft, beautiful and refined, the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 dress in this illustration features sunray pleated chiffon in the palest shade of pink. Dainty drop earrings embellished with colorful but delicate animal figurines lend a whimsical touch to the whole look.

Runway Look: Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017

Current Cravings

At the Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017 show it was all about ruby lips and fancy frocks. There were so many divine dresses in this collection, but I decided to focus on 2 dresses for this illustration. I started with this lovely gown in a delicate shade of pink, with a bodice embellished with dainty bows and flower petals. The second runway look in this illustration features a deep wine-colored draped silk chiffon floor-length gown accessorized with vintage jewelry. I’m sure we’ll be seeing several dresses from this collection on the red carpet in the months to come.

Runway Look: Lanvin Fall 2017

Current Cravings

Taken as a whole, Lanvin’s Fall 2017 collection featured a mix of menswear influenced pieces paired with very soft and feminine elements. Some of the individual looks, however, were ultra feminine with little to no menswear influenced elements. This particular illustration features a look that combines several elements that are quintessentially feminine. Cascading ruffles in dusty pink and lace couldn’t be any more soft and delicate, but still manage to convey a sophisticated vibe.

Runway Look: Elie Saab Couture Spring 2017

Current Cravings

I love these two runway looks from Elie Saab’s Spring 2017 Couture collection because they are a modern take on retro ladylike glam. Both dresses feature a figure flattering silhouette rendered in sumptuous fabric and adorned with gold and jewel encrusted embellishments. To me, these dresses are every bit as sexy as body conscious designs.

Runway Look: Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2017

Current Cravings

Giambattista Valli’s couture shows usually end with a series of voluminous and decadent tiered tulle gowns, and his Spring 2017 Couture show was no exception. And because I’m a dessert first, then dinner type of person, I couldn’t wait to see the ball gown confections that comprise the finale of the runway show. Don’t get me wrong, the show was filled with lovely pieces that I definitely want to illustrate, but I had to draw this exquisite tulle ball gown first.

Runway Look: Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016

Current Cravings


I loved the silhouettes used in the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016 collection. And the black and white palette, with touches of gold and silver, allowed the silhouettes to take center stage. This show was billed as a modern take on the New Look (full skirts, tiny waists, and billowing fabric) that Christian Dior introduced in his debut collection.

This off-the-shoulder halter dress with gold embroidery was one of my favorite looks from the collection. The overall vibe of the collection was modern, chic, and feminine, yet effortless.

Craving Spring Trends: Chokers and Ruffles 

Current Cravings


My series on standout Spring 2016 clothing and accessory pairings continues with a second combination: ruffles and chokers.

A ruffled dress paired with a choker is a classic pairing that can come off as little “costumey” if you’re not careful. But done right, the look can be romantic with a slight edge. The jewel tones of this Alice + Olivia dress and this Christian Dior choker keeps this look fresh, not “costumey.”

Chokers also pair well with slip dresses (for a very ’90s look). Which combination do you prefer, chokers and ruffles or chokers and slip dresses?

Runway Look: Alexandre Vauthier Couture Spring 2016

Current Cravings

Sublime Cravings- Alexandre Vauthier Couture

I adore the Parisian bombshell vibe that pervaded the Alexandre Vauthier Couture show. Over-the-knee boots and silk cargo pants paired with military styled coats managed to feel strong and sexy, but not contrived. And those Ray-Ban aviator specs-I want some of those immediately!

Twirling in Tulle: Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2016

Current Cravings

Sublime Cravings - Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2016
How can you stop yourself from twirling in a gown made of tiered tulle ruffles? Impossible, right?

One of my favorite elements of every Giambattista Valli Couture show are the floaty tulle tiered gowns that appear at the end of the show. The red gown was definitely a show stopper.

Balmain Beauty: Gigi Hadid in Balmain Spring 2016

Current Cravings

Sublime Cravings - Gigi Hadid - Balmain
As soon as I saw pics of Gigi Hadid wearing this outfit in the Spring 2016 Balmain show, I just knew I had to create an illustration featuring this look. I adore the “too glam to give a damn” vibe that Balmain exudes, and my goal was to capture that feeling in this drawing. Also, the Balmain aesthetic is all about embellishment and extravagant details (as evidenced by this graphic metal skirt), and I seem to have this odd obsession with rendering intricate details.
