New York: Ralph Lauren
I tried to make this a bit different and have a hand drawn- not too neat feel to it, I added some highlights to the gloves and tried to make the face and arms have a pencil sketched look.

Next i drew an outfit from one of my favorite collections of LFW, which was TOPSHOP Unique, i drew their cleopatra show last year but i'm excited to do a proper illustration with the military vibe they've obtained now. This is one of the images i've drawn, i plan to illustrate a few more and arrange them all together.

Keeping with my Watercolour theme i wanted to make this look quick and washed out, i'm not entirely satisfied with the outcome, but i do like the polaroid edges, once this is placed with the other topshop illustrations i think it'll work better, at the moment i don't think it's as striking as it could be (maybe a little dull) but as i said this is a small part of a bigger Piece.

This is, again (like the topshop illustration above) a small part of a bigger art piece. Gucci's collection blew me away, completely dark, alluring and beautiful it was a collection i saw straight away and knew i had to draw! Milan and Paris are the weeks i'm most excited about as my favorite designers are showing, everything is always immaculate and precise. This is a backstage shot i drew, As the collection is dark with mainly blacks and deep colours i didn't want this piece to be on a white background like the majority of my works, i think working on black makes drawings stand out instantly, every highlight is noticed and equally there isn't much opportunity to hide your mistakes.

I couldn't resist having a go at drawing this, I love drawing hair...
My TOPSHOP piece from last year, egyptian inspired. I've fallen out of love with this and now want to redeem myself with a better topshop illustration to do their new collection justice. But this is the style in which i plan to compile the rest of the work.

Another example of how i want to arrange my new pieces.
