Play Galllllll x Kate Moss x Mert and Marcus


Even before seeing the Kate Moss shoot for Playboy's 60th Birthday, I knew I was going to be obsessed with it. Kate Moss doesn't do things by halves and she certainly doesn't disappoint. 
The legendary fashion photographers Mert and Marcus have captured classic old school Playboy glamour as well as artistic and modern imagery in the editorial.
Each image seems to tell a different story and has its own unique charm.

My illustration is from a photograph from the shoot. This image has been used as a print on Marc Jacobs shirts. Of course, after knowing about this shirt I immediately tried to purchase it, but I can't get it shipped to the UK. I'm almost kind of tempted to get my illustration printed on a tee and wear it instead.
Although this illustration looks very much like Kate Moss, I strangely see an element of Kim Kardashian in it; I think it's possibly the lips.

New treats.

Well summer is well and truly over, and what better way to get over the summer blues than to buy new bits for the cold months to come.

My new winter essentials: 
Monki black lace bra
Black leather platform shoes 
& Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.

Miley x Obsession.

Miley Cyrus... NYC shot by Terry Richardson! 

I (and the rest of the world) am literally OBSESSED with Miley Cyrus at the moment. I love the controversy that she causes, and I personally am sitting back and enjoying the show.

Leather...


Certain angles, looks, poses and styles really inspire me, and this is when I seem to create my best! I was playing around with the concept "leather" for an AW13 trend and felt inspired to create this image. I love the simplicity of only using one colour and medium to create this piece. I have also created another piece on this theme, but I believe it might be getting used in the British Mode Magazine's up and coming publication so I am not able to post it on my blog at the moment. That piece in my eyes is my best illustration yet, and I cannot wait to share it on my blog.

I have also recently created some illustrations of Paris Fashion Week catwalk looks that can be found on British Mode Magazine's website.

Christian Dior back stage illustration, Paris Fashion Week


In regards to my last post about posting a LANVIN illustration. I did create one, but sent it to British Mode Magazine for their website. So if you would like to see my LAVNIN and Christian Dior catwalk illustrations then please check on their website in a few days.

Illustrations from Paris Fashion Week - Day 3

For some reason yesterday I felt massive creative frustration and block. Yesterday showcased so many beautiful collections including two of my favourite brands Balenciaga and Balmin, but when pen came to paper I felt that I some how wasn't creating my best. Hopefully today will make up for yesterday. Also I haven't had the time to illustrate the LANVIN show, but have some great ideas, so will try and get them online by this evening.

Illustrations from Paris Fashion Week - Day 1

I had the most amazing experience at London Fashion Week illustrating for Fashion Scout's blog. This is because I was doing something I love and am super passionate about and had so much creative responsibility. I enjoyed running from hair and make-up rooms, to back stage of the catwalk to the show itself, all to get the best inspiration for my illustrations. I hope that you enjoy the illustrations as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Illustrating for Fashion Scout at London Fashion Week has made me realise that fashion illustration is something that I really wish to pursue as a career. I am currently looking for work in illustration, probably freelance, but a full time job would be amazing. 

As well as working London Fashion Week, I also worked London Fashion Weekend. My role was being part of the general staff and making sure that the public was looked after. This was enjoyable and I throughly enjoyed being part of a busy, high fashion atmosphere and contributing to the bigger outcome. I got some great street style images from LFW and LFWend that I want to do illustrations of , but haven't yet had the time, so that will be coming soon. I also have a lot of things that I want to illustrate from Milan Fashion week, but in the meantime, it is currently Paris Fashion Week and I have decided to illustrate each day the highlights from some shows. I wish that I could be in Paris as I had been in London, then I would have more fluid images to inspire me; maybe next season I will be lucky enough.

Day one Paris Fashion Week.

London Fashion Week - LULU LIU


LULU LIU, the amazing and beautiful SS14 collection showcases at Freemasons Hall yesterday. This collection is one of my favourite collections of the season. I love the beautiful summer's elegance that LULU LIU captures in her collection "Yarrow Wando" and this inspired me as an illustrator to create the pieces below for the Fashion Scout blog. All of the images are my own, from either backstage or the live catwalk show.
