I had the most amazing experience at London Fashion Week illustrating for Fashion Scout's blog. This is because I was doing something I love and am super passionate about and had so much creative responsibility. I enjoyed running from hair and make-up rooms, to back stage of the catwalk to the show itself, all to get the best inspiration for my illustrations. I hope that you enjoy the illustrations as much as I enjoyed creating them!
Illustrating for Fashion Scout at London Fashion Week has made me realise that fashion illustration is something that I really wish to pursue as a career. I am currently looking for work in illustration, probably freelance, but a full time job would be amazing.
As well as working London Fashion Week, I also worked London Fashion Weekend. My role was being part of the general staff and making sure that the public was looked after. This was enjoyable and I throughly enjoyed being part of a busy, high fashion atmosphere and contributing to the bigger outcome. I got some great street style images from LFW and LFWend that I want to do illustrations of , but haven't yet had the time, so that will be coming soon. I also have a lot of things that I want to illustrate from Milan Fashion week, but in the meantime, it is currently Paris Fashion Week and I have decided to illustrate each day the highlights from some shows. I wish that I could be in Paris as I had been in London, then I would have more fluid images to inspire me; maybe next season I will be lucky enough.
Day one Paris Fashion Week.
