PRETTY PUMPED

As you know, I’m quite the sequin fanatic lately! I find it exciting to explore new mediums. It keeps my work interesting and gives me tiny challenges here and there.

These three *sequined* ladies were created in collaboration with Nine West to don pieces from their latest collections, Pretty Pumped, Urban Boho, and Street Chic.

Let’s begin with Pretty Pumped.

I had the most fun creating this one… she’s got a bit of an attitude, and those sequin shorts take it to the next level!

Illustrations created with watercolor, gouache, pencil, and sequins.

Throughout my time in Boston, I spent many nights watching the Boston Ballet dance around the stage of the Boston Opera House. Now that I’m in New York, I can’t wait to go see how the New York City Ballet puts on a show…

Delpozo

Delpozo’s Spring 2014 collection is a complete work of art. Usually when I’m looking at a runway collection, I can pick out a handful of my favorites… but with Delpozo, there wasn’t a look I didn’t love. What a beautiful world Joseph Font created… and those shoes!

With New York Fashion Week coming to a close, my mind is full of newfound ideas and inspirations. What shows have been your favorite this season?

Since launching my online fashion illustration class with Skillshare, I’ve been thrilled to see what inspires you and how you transform that inspiration into beautiful illustrations. Beginning today, I’m hosting a contest for all of you budding illustrators out there! Sign up for my fashion illustration class, and post your favorite look from the SS14 runway shows for a chance to pick the bag of your choice from Lo & Sons. The bags are perfect to tote your art supplies around in as you travel in search of inspiration. I will be picking two winners on October 15th. The top winner will also receive a special gift from me (perhaps an original painting?!) I’ll be looking for creativity. Post your illustration to the class, and title it “SS14 Inspiration”. You can also post it on instagram and tag it with #paperfashionclass.

Good luck! I can’t wait to see what you come up with…!
