After writing the previous post about Chanel's Haute Couture show, I had a look at Chanel News, the brand's official blog and found this cute watercolours, painted by Clemence Poesy, the lovely actress (and apparently also painter) Who didn't love her in Birdsong, Gossip Girl and In Bruges. She has a fresh, uncomplicated, classic style mixed with that casual, I-didn't-look-at-myself-in-the-mirror-today French chic.
Paperfashion is another illustration blog I asiduously folow. Katie Rodgers is the artist behind it. Commissioned by companies such as Kate Spade and Coach, Rodgers turned her love for watercolours into a full.time career. A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in Industrial Design, she worked in apparel design at Reebok and illustrated on the side until she was able to do it exclusively. Her company is called Paperfashion too.
Samantha Hahn is also a pretty cool illustrator. She usually covers NY Fashion week but also does freelance stuff and collaborates with The Cut, Refinery 29, Tiffany's, Victoria Secret... AND also paints mouth-watering food. She has a blog called Maquette.
Here are some beautiful and inspiring books about fashion illustration
