Fashion illustration by Viet Tran.
Touring the fashion illustration talent exhibition at the London College of Fashion Showtime degree show necessitated a bit of a cat and mouse chase in order to take photos without detection by the overzealous security guards who were convinced I was up to no good. I have no idea why… I just want to introduce the world to some great new fashion illustration talents.
Rachel Wilkinson‘s decorative symmetrical illustrations were beautifully imagined… I just wish I could find her online!
Deborah Jameson had painted a large sheet with a characterful beauty portrait.
Emma Layland had used some interesting print effects to create simple images with great hair/hat detailing.
For Alison Naomi Tullett it was all about the flamingos… painted on to a big banner. A quick glance at her website reveals that she is as enamoured of animals as she is of humans.
Philip Dunn used minimal brush strokes to idiosyncratic effect, advice creating individual and engaging fashion portraits. I do believe that second one is Maggie!
Jingwen Sun used simple swathes of watercolour to create a bold beauty portrait.
Cheryl Windahl is a girl after my own heart – I loved her two decorative artworks, displayed opposite each other – each tiny detail covered in swathes of colour and pattern.
Kelly Anne Sheppard produced a diptych of fineline menswear. I thought I recognised her – she was one of the illustrators in residence for Fashion Scout last season alongside Amelia’s Magazine contributor Andy Bumpus.
Viet Tran favours the surreal – loved the dapper animals in costume and flying donkey surrounded by flowers, kittens and bunnies. Why not check out Viet Tran’s blog and Twitter feed?
And over here you can find my Fashion Photography and Styling review.
