I have recently been fascinated by Youtubers.
I am currently subscribed to so many channels that I thoroughly enjoy watching. It is fantastic how technology allows us to be a part of each other lives. Our world is filled with talented individuals, and YouTube has done a great job at making it accessible for us to enjoy and learn from videos made by people who willingly share their lives and their work with us.
The most wonderful part about this group of illustrations is how much one can learn by simply embracing other people’s style. It is so easy to get stuck in “what’s safe” or what’s popular in society. That is why this challenge of designing for individual’s who’s fashion has already gotten a strong style, was absolutely inspiring. It was a great learning experience to create looks that were true to my style, but also kept the core of what makes these YouTube stars so magnificent.
I hope you enjoy the illustrations, I will leave a tag under each sketch with the YouTube channel corresponding to each person. Make sure to go and check them out! These guys are pros at what they do.
There is no doubt that the Fanning genes are filled with talent.
I personally feel like it was just yesterday that I was watching Dakota dance around in a pink ballerina skirt with Brittany Murphy; and even though time flew right before our eyes, the most wonderful part about seeing the girls grow up, is to see them become such fine young ladies.
Ever since I spotted Elle Fanning on Teen Vogue I fell in love with her look. I think it would be a dream to get to design for either one of the Fanning girls. I love how they always looks so elegant and put together. Love how they style complicated pieces into chic, modern and youthful outfits, and most importantly, I love how they always look so classy.
Recently I watched the trailer for Elle Fanning’s new movie “Ginger and Rosa”. The trailer had me head over heels at the first 10 seconds of footage. What a production! The visual aesthetics were impeccable. I can’t wait to watch the film and keep feeding my current inspiration revolving around cuban history, the 1960’s and the idea of young pure-hearted females in history.
You can watch the trailer here.
So as usual, I decided to create a few looks for Elle Fanning, keeping in mind that award season is coming up. Although the looks are different to her usual style, I know no better that to style people with my personal touch. Ha!
I hope you guys enjoy the first sketches for 2013!
