Chanel has always been my favourite fashion house, and I have always been a fan of Karl Lagerfeld’s. I like the idea’s the brand was founded on, and I loved that Coco Chanel was such a pioneer with such an amazing style.
Chanel along with Dior are the richest fashion houses, so their shows are always the most exciting to watch , because they can basically make anything they want to. They pretty much have no budget, or should I say an unlimited budget.
My dream is to actually watch one of their shows live. Anyone who has seen luxury clothing in real life, knows that photographs, or even a moving image can never do the clothes justice.
My girl, I think I’m calling her (my alter ego) ‘Girl’ for now. So, Girl, is wearing my favourite piece from the Chanel Pre-Fall 2016 Collection, which was shown in Rome a couple of days ago. I’ve also attached a couple of my other favourite looks from the collection.
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.
