my kind of art
After seeing the illustrations Lanvin were selling for charity (ref. “I want Lanvin, not Diamonds!” post) I decided to look up slightly more affordable fashion illustration artworks for my bedroom wall.
Technically, the typical fashion illustration is this: costume design by Giorgio Armani –
for Lady Gaga & Alicia Keys
But I came across these by Cate Parr on Etsy –
Which are also considered ‘fashion illustration’ and they’re incredibly beautiful! I got the middle one (of Marion Cotillard) for Christmas.
The works range from $30 to $300 depending on whether you buy an original or copy.
Then it occurred to me that I’d previously seen fashion illustration from the wonderful & talented Garance Doré!
She is so amazing in so many ways! I love how simple the lines are and yet how much character they convey.
“So frenchy! So chic!”
As it turns out, fashion illustration is everywhere! Can’t wait to deck my future house out in it, this is my kind of art.
