Jacqueline Bissett whose clients include Givenchy, Harpers Bazaar, and Moët sent us her TOP 5 fashion illustration art supplies.  If you don’t already know… Jacqueline is coming out with an exciting new fashion illustration course ($195) hosted by MASTERED.  There’s something artist at all levels can learn from her years of experience working with clients.

Fashion Sketch Night | Harbison Collection

The models at the last Fashion Sketch Night at Society of Illustrators were styled in designs by HARBISON.  I became aware of this label designed by Charles Harbison when Vogue featured him last year in an exclusive piece heralding the collection.  The collection explores gender neutrality with looks inspired by singer Patti Smith and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
-
Charles stopped by and shared his inspiration, creative process, and fabrics featured in the collection.  This Fashion Drawing Session began with quick gesture drawings, then progressed into longer 15 minute poses by the models.  Fashion illustrator, Clifford Faust, did an amazing job capturing Jennifer who modeled the red wool felt sleeveless overcoat with tropical wool blazer and apron pant.

WYRT is always busy promoting the art of fashion illustration. We sent Ellie Rahim, Lily Qian, and Danielle Meder to draw at fashion shows during NYFW and were able to place their art on The Fashion Spot which has a huge following with over 71K Facebook followers.

Drawing From A Live Model by Ellie Rahim

Fashion illustrator, Ellie Rahim, captured the essence of model (Rosemarie Lewis) styled in the New York fashion brand Gregory Apparel by Rachel Gregory at last month’s Fashion Drawing Session.  Ellie is one of the best when it comes to translating a 3D image into a 2D fashionable image, and also leaving just enough to spark the viewer’s imagination.  See Ellie’s portfolio of work at http://ellierahim.blogspot.com/ Ellie will be drawing at the HARARE fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

Danielle Meder said something really interesting at the Apple Soho Store yesterday. She mentioned that she feels more like a performance artist rather than someone creating a product.

Danielle is best known for her live runway illustrations during New York Fashion Week. She creates her fashion illustrations on an Ipad using the Pencil App by FiftyThree – a stylus designed for touch-screen devices.
