Back in April I decided to give fashion illustration a whirl. I started with a couple looks from Marchesa. The first one pictured below is from the Marchesa Spring Summer 2016 collection.
This next look is from the Marchesa Fall Winter 2016 collection.
This week Georgina Chapman Marchesa, founder of Marchesa, posted one of my illustrations on her personal Instagram page. Then, last night, to my surprise, 3 photos of my illustrations were posted on the official Marchesa Instagram page! To have the designer of the dresses I was drawing recognize my work in this way was surreal and quite an honor! I was so touched that they appreciated my art just as much as I have appreciated their art! Their gowns are so inspired and artfully crafted, I just want them all.
Prints of these two prints are now available for purchase on my Etsy page! I am so excited to get them in homes all across America so that everyone can enjoy a Marchesa gown. If you can't own one for your body, at least hang one on your wall! Prints can be purchased HERE.
