If you have any interest in the fashion world, you know there is a new trend in the Fashion Press, taking a piece of the hysteria around the oh-so-popular "street style" blogs / editorials. Finally, a return to some artistry. Something a bit more romantic and whimsical from creative artists and designer illustrators . Illustrations and fashion sketches are a welcomed diversion from dressed up fashionistas in painfully "natural" photo-ops. ("Street Style" shots from a studied eye like the Sartorialist are great, but others have really muddied the water). After all, you don't really think all those girls are actually invited to those shows they are shot "on the way to" - #Puhlease !!
The celebrated sketches of Donald Robertson aka #Drawbertson are everywhere. His instagram account counts 156k followers to date. His creative take on headlines and red hot fashion is always entertaining - and intriguing. If you don't know Drawbertson - put him on your list now.
One super talented illustrator and fashion designer is Michael Ward. (MichaelWardNYC on Instagram). Ward might look familiar to those who watch reality television as he is the man behind several interior designer and fashion stylist- turned designers #RTW collections. He's been known in the industry for years and now for the first time coming front-of-house. Ward's sketches are usually profile and his ladies STRIDE like a #Supermodel from the 90's - watch out! Michael is bound to become the next Drawbertson (he already announced a partnership with a fabric company).
So be on the lookout for this guy and his talented sketches. They are always inspiring, pretty, and beautiful.... how many things can you say that about? Thank you for the re-mind Mr. Ward. Fashion should be beautiful. #WhatAConcept #Bravo #Pretty #Brilliant #MichaelWard
