Fashion Illustrators you need to know

No doubt this is one of the most artistic and creative sides of fashion, the world of illustrators makes the fashionista public dream and can fully satisfy the designers needing to be told by something truly unique.

Watercolor, pastels, pantone, colored pencils, collage, there are a thousand techniques and they are often combined together. Some even insert digital parts but the best illustrations remain those where the hands have worked on a sheet. Clean or crude lines, very stylized figures or women reminiscent of the great cartoonists and pop culture; each artist tells us a piece of himself and his way of seeing fashion through his works.

She studied industrial design at the Art academy in Riga, Latvia and in New York.

Recently Alina has collaborated on the illustration of a Cosmopolitan Latvia issue. Inspired by high fashion and everyday life moments, her portrayed women have a decisive and elegant look and the texture is important and magnetic; hand painted with charcoal, watercolor and acrylic.

The fashion illustration is for her a synthesis of style, story, emotion and moment. A human story, personal but shared that can be rewritten in each painting.
