The outfits I choose are a mixture and revolve around these things: what I would die to wear, an outfit that is the absolute show stopper, something the model suits so well that the whole thing just comes together perfectly (bravo casting directors on that one!), an outfit that I think would be a challenge to illustrate or would be just plain fun to draw because its so kooky, or most importantly a design that is so true to the designer's aesthetic that it cant be missed. Each illustration takes around 15 mins to finish and when drawn straight from the catwalk those take around 30 seconds!
As of next year I'm setting my sights high and want to be a regular fixture at Perth, Sydney and Melbourne Fashion Weeks and in September fly to Paris and sketch at as many shows as possible! Eeek! I have learnt that if you want something bad enough you can get it:) And the following September (2013) I will be in Milan and Paris. Cant wait to look back on this post to see what happens!
I hope you enjoy both my choices and my illustrations, xpip.
