This weekend is yours!
Let me share a little something about me. “I was a very quiet, withdrawn little girl who enjoyed her privacy and still do. In those my alone moments, i draw (yea, it’s one of my childhood past times) until i got discouraged by no other than my dad (he’s not reading this i’m sure). That’s the reason i never took my innate drawing talent any serious rather i took to daydreaming…Lol
In my uni days, i picked it up again and started making sketches of clothes on a paper. I actually had a fashion look-book until i dropped it again. Blame it on me this time…
Anyways, the best encouragement i got with my sketching was from @seunZ avoiR and @NOD (they are great designers, please follow them on Instagram) when i did the sketch below. Seun suggested i go into fashion illustration and make some bucks. Mehn! I had to hit Google immediately to understand what she was talking about (no shame please) while NOD made the coral floral dress from my sketch which i wore to my cousin’s wedding. The brooch part was omitted but it’s something i can always accessorize with the dress any day.
Wondering what “Fashion Illustration” is all about?
“Fashion Illustration is the communication of fashion that originates with illustration, drawing and painting. It is usually commissioned for reproduction in fashion magazines as one part of an editorial feature or for the purpose of advertising and promoting fashion makers, fashion boutiques and department stores” —– According to Wikipedia
