Ooppss! I did it again

 

Hello Fashionistas,

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 “I was a very quiet, withdrawn little girl who enjoyed her privacy and still do.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.IMG_20151126_224732 [1229183]

I did it again! Yes, I recently sketched the jumpsuit below while explaining to NOD, the style for the new fabrics i got. We don’t have the finished work yet but trust me to rock it and share it.

If you are following me on Facebook or Instagram, i had asked that you guess which is the back of the jumpsuit and which is the front.

Wondering what “Fashion Illustration” is all about?

“Fashion Illustration is the communication of fashion that originates with illustrationdrawing 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

I’m calling on all my fashionistas, tagging; Nedoux and Cassie…… 

Tell me what you think about my fashion illustrator “in the making” skill?

Until my next style post, do have yourself a stylish weekend!!!

    I love your style above, very simple, classy and fun. I draw alot, I actually had to chose between pursuing fine arts or focusing on my writing. Thank God, I chose writing though. I used to draw my clothes designs till one day I drew one and when the tailor finished, I couldn't believe it! I didn't wear that dress more than twice. You really do have talent and you should do the fashion illustration thing more often. I read Nedoux blog and she's so talented at making clothes.

    When I say you are my blood sister I joke not. We both talk in our sleep, we both have writing and drawing interest, what else is missing? Lol
    I intend to improve on my creative art skills in the nearest future
    And yes Nedoux is talented!
