Erdem: Spring 2010

Erdem: Spring 2010

I am a fashion Illustrator, studying illustration at London College of Fashion. I specialise in runway illustration, using a variation of simple materials such as watercolour and tippex.

I have been drawing for over decade and have developed my style in the past few years.

I chose a collection by London based designer Erdem as his aesthetic really suits my style of illustration. These are 5 dresses from his Spring 2011 collection. Detailed close-ups can be seen on my tumblr/website (http://jlarkowskyillustration.tumblr.com/post/10361633403/erdem-londons-...)

The other two images are other designer looks I have recreated. They are both sets of 3 looks taken from each show.

The first, a dress by Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere's Fall 2006 collection, really stood out to me. The saturated colours and impressive shape really contradicts my slim and sleek figure. (http://jlarkowskyillustration.tumblr.com/post/9457414768/new-materials-b...)

The other is a sketch of Christian Dior by John Galliano Fall 2006 Haute Couture show. Being one of my favourite collections of all time, the beautiful embroidery and Metallic Armoured sleeve and bodice really create a statement, which I wanted to emulate in the sketch.
