Happy Friday everyone! Boy do I have a fun surprise for you. Lately I have been thinking of fun ways to incorporate more fashion into my blog. I came up with the idea of introducing a fashion illustration, that is then translated into a corresponding design. It’s easy to see how art and design reflect fashion and vice versa. You often see trends on the runway and in magazines, that are reflected in design.
So without further ado, I’ve teamed up with the talented illustrator Lisa Nishimura, from Sketch & Pixel. Lisa and I have worked together before and I knew she would be the perfect illustrator to collaborate with. Lisa will be illustrating the looks and I will be designing the graphics! Check out that detail in the illustration above. She is GOOD!
For our first Fashion Meets Design post, we were inspired by the Pamella Roland RTW Spring 2013: Modern classicism line. The gown is classic and graphic. You’ll notice that her spring line includes linear shapes and has a modern edge. It’s no wonder, since Roland’s line was inspired by artist Ellsworth Kelly. See what I mean, fashion is influenced by art and design as well! The font to go with this look, is a free download, designed by David McLeod. We hope you enjoy this series, we plan on more to come!
