No matter what medium is used, Diana’s characters always have pronounced facial features. Rather than taking away from the fashion, it adds personality to the “models” and more story to each look. She is also adept when it comes to making textures visually tactile. For example, the fringe on the skirt (Image 1) and the tweed cape coat (Image 2). Random Thought: The black and white contrast and splash of colors in Image 1 makes me think of paintings on newspaper.

There is an unfinished quality to Elise’s work that I really like. The imagery looks as though it were sketched in a matter of minutes without hesitation or delay. The imagery flows; it feels effortless.

Feliciana is a student so her style is still changing and growing. Two elements that are consistent in her evolving work are strong face shapes and almond-shaped doe eyes (That is the only way to describe the eyes). Keep up the great work Feliciana; you are very talented and will definitely be successful. πŸ™‚

I appreciate fashion illustrators with a unique, unforgettable style. Those who are truly successful stand out without being cheesy or over-the-top. Georgina’s rich colors, detailed patterns, unrealistic body shapes, and “fly eyes” take her illustrations beyond just fashion; I would label it as “Fine Art.” Also, her work is like a high fashion version of “The Buzz on Maggie” (Yes, I do have Millenial references for everything).

  1. Hi Lauren Michele, I was searching more about myself on Google for school purposes and I stumble upon this blog. Thank you so much for your feature :’) it was such a shame for me to take a hiatus from fashion illustration and i do change my style a lot, but currently trying to find my own identity as a fashion illustrator. Thank you so much once again. Your post, even though it has been long in the past, has encouraged me to stay in the industry. Keep in touch! love your blog πŸ™‚
