Have you been to the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the NGV? It’s on until February next year, you have plenty of time, but don’t miss out. And you probably have to go more than once, just so you can take it all in.
Above is a collage I made of a few illustrations I drew from the exhibition.
This here is the Comme Des Garcons Spring 2015 Collection.
I’ve been keeping myself super busy with creating these boards and illustrations using illustrator. I’ve found this is a really great way to remember each collection and also identify the silhouettes and specific details of each collection as well.
I basically start off with collecting all the images and putting them in order of how they appear on the runway, and then I pick out all the colours I can see in the collection and then finish off with the sketches.
Comme Des Garcons is always one of my favourites, the designs are so original, creative, and detailed, it’s so amazing.
More experimentation with Photoshop. So fun. Still using Thom Browne Fall 2013 RTW, because, why not, it’s so fucking amazing.
My favourite album at the moment is Kanye West Presents Good Music Cruel Summer. I watched Kanye when he was on tour in Melbourne and he is all I’ve been listening to lately. What are you listening to?
One of my top looks from NYFW S2015 was the one above from The Row. The image above on the left is from from style.com and the one on the left is my illustration.
The Row is a label I am falling more and more in love with each season.
Just in case you weren’t aware, the designers at The Row are Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. They named it “The Row” after Savile Row in London. Mary Kate and Ashely explain the label as being; “…refined, minimal luxury that is wearable. …everything tailored to your body…”
I hope you’re all well and happy. Thank you all for reading and following on and for all your comments. Yesterday was the first day of my winter uni holiday and it was a great day. It is so nice being able to make plans with people and plans to actually do things and get things done. My first priority is rest, and then after that organisation. My room has definitely seen better days.
The images above are of my complete Mood board and Range board. I just wanted to show you them completed. I did the range by hand, I did the drawings and then scanned them into the page. I had my design panel interview on Thursday past and I think it went well. There were two teachers and two people from industry. I just showed them my boards, folio, research and my final designs and explained everything.
New stationery gets me so excited. At the moment I am obsessed with Copic’s. Normally my automatic choice for rendering an illustration is watercolour but for some reason lately I have started using Copic’s and I really love them. You may have noticed the last few I posted up on the blog are actually rendered with them.
Above I have drawn the Copic’s I bought today. I want to start a sketchbook of all the things I purchase. That’d be cool. And then next to the Copic’s I’ve drawn a look from Miu Miu Fall RTW 2014. I love Miu Miu.
