Illustrator Isabella Hemmersbach from Copenhagen has shared her favourite women’s looks from last week’s Copenhagen Fashion Week. ”I’ve tried to capture the essence of the Spring Summer 2016 looks by finding the read threads and pick the looks I find visually the most attractive.” (as seen on Kaltblut)
Love the Bacherlor's Project "White Noise" about critical (fashion) illustrations from Swedish illustrator Sara Andreasson. Sara’s work, with her bright palettes and bold characters, has strong feminist undertones and a sense of societal commentary that is always handled with a playful touch. She is also editing an art zine called BBY magazine– a publication focused on prominent female creatives within the art and design world.
"Fashion can, with its implicit flux, be described as an ever-changing mirror of the times, a reflection of prevailing dreams and utopias as well as an expression of limitations and shortcomings. By considering fashion a continuous documentation of the Zeitgeist, we can apprehend the norms and ideals that manifests themselves way beyond the glossy spreads of a fashion magazine.
White Noise is a norm-critical project resulting in a series of fashion illustrations, through conformity and resistance aiming to expose the hierachies that quietly shape the grid against which we are inevitably measured". – Sara Andreasson -
This project is exhibited until 27.09 at New Nordic Fashion Illustration vol.2, Tallinn, Estonia
Summertime! Love the tropical neon colored work of Annu Kilpeläinen, a Finnish born illustrator that lives and works in London. Providing bold vibrant rainbow coloured imagery Annu’s portfolio bursts with character depicting summery scenes of urban landscapes, pattern, flowers, portraits and narrative with a distinctly tropical vibe.
Summer has started Amsterdam! Love this colorful work of artist Lynnie Zulu, born and bred in the Scottish Borders, with an artist mother who was born in Tanzania. She studied at Kingston and now lives and works in East London. Zulu’s work carries an African influence that is revealed in the energetic mark making and by the exotic characters she creates. Her illustrations can be found in fashion print, apparel and accessories, LP artwork, live art and in exhibitions.
