I had wore lovely Pierre Cardin blouse with a brown skirt with tiny orange flowers all over it. It was a summery look on the outside which contratsted with very wintery (multiple!)layers on the inside. It was frigid weather with the wind blowing in every direction possible – or as I like to call it – Penguin Weather.
I attended two shows on this day. The first one was Herve Leger – an arm of BCBGMaxAzria.
Herve Leger show was packed with grunge glam excitement. The dresses were a slight shift from their bandage style dresses that they are known for. The make up , the hair , the dresses and the boots (!) were all on point . My photographs were so bad , they are not worth posting. But I loved creating the illustrations. Don’t these ladies look like they are ready to take on the world ?
Now if I could get the stylists to do my hair like them , that’ll be awesome. I love working on hair details, if you haven’t realized by now.
AND the boots .. can we agree that a dress with boots works for every occasion ?
I cannot believe the year is almost drawing to an end. Its the beginning of December. In our household, it means, I just got done with both my kids’ birthday parties. Majority of the birthdays in our family begin in October. My sisters, my husband, father- in-law, my niece , my son , my brother-in-law and my daughter. Lots of birthdays, phew !
December begins with my daughter’s birthday , there’s holiday parties, Christmas , my own birthday and of course the year ends – in that order .
There’s lots of illustrations to be done , in all of this, of course.
I’ve been busy with a few commissioned pieces, which I love. If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram, you’ll see the stuff I’ve been playing with.
It’s hard to pick , but here are some of my favorite pieces.
I came across this gorgeous dress designed by Suneet Varma, an Indian designer. The red just caught my eye . Give him some love. Really one to watch .
This particular piece was regrammed by the designer. yay.. to me its a recognition that the designer appreciates the way I interpret his vision in my own way. I also feel very connected to the designer and his/her vision.
Who doesn’t like shoes and heels ? Pair them up with some frayed hem jeans as reported by The Zoe Project – you’ll be on point.
I love illustrating movement , as is obvious in many of my sketches – be it fashion , street style , dance and sport . Its all about conveying that energy in an artistic way. I am inspired by the photographs taken by the nycdanceproject . If you haven’t checked them out, you should. Here’s a sketch inspired by their picture from last Monday.
More shoes. I love them .. which girl doesn’t , right ?
Pantone delighted the world by announcing the Color of the Year for 2016 – not one , but two – Rose Quartz and Serenity ! Thank you , Pantone !
This dress .. speechless !
I also want to highlight the fashion happening in Australia . I am an Indian-born Australian living in the U.S. I tend to stay connected to all these parts of me through illustrating them . Keeps me inspired and hopefully , I bring to you content that is fresh and new.
Lastly , I want to leave you with this gorgeous ballerina – yes, again …
This one just felt like she was floating – poetry in motion. One of those pictures that you feel just has to be illustrated !
I hope you have a lovely week ahead of you . I will be back again to share more with you . In the meantime, email me – lsartillustration (at) gmail.com) to say hi or follow me on Instagram to keep up and connect .
