I’m very pleased to be part of another exhibition! The Warehouse Gallery based in Brooklyn, New York presents some of my work in their newest show ‚Suit‘. Lesley and Kamau Ware opened the gallery in November 2013 and Lesley (www.thecreativecookie.com) is also the author of a wonderful book I’m currently illustrating. It’s a guide about style and sewing for young girls and will be published by Laurence King early 2015.
The exhibition runs until March 8th, so make sure to come around if you are in New York!

Another wonderful new publication by TASCHEN: ‘Illustration Now! Fashion’ presents the work of 90 contemporary fashion illustrators and I’m very happy to be one of them!
“Every dress begins with a drawing, every skirt with a sketch. Illustration is integral to fashion design not only as a means of expression, and the starting point of every design, but also for patterns and prints as well as magazine editorial illustrations. Often, artists will even illustrate the newest looks directly from the catwalks. It’s high time we celebrated fashion illustration in our ‘Illustration Now!’ series: here you’ll find new work from 90 artists around the globe, including Ruben Toledo, Aurore de La Morinerie, Bil Donovan, Tanya Ling, and Jean-Philippe Delhomme. The book features quotes by experts from the fashion world: Valentino compliments the work of Gladys Perint Palmer; voices out of the studios of Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, and H&M add their praise for the talents in the book.”
A few months ago Monsa featured my work in one of its new books again and I’m happy to see my illustration on the cover! ‘Fundamental Fashion Illustration’ is available on www.monsashop.com.
I’m quite excited to show some new work I made for Valentino! I was asked to create a series of illustrations interpreting Valentino’s Acqua Floreale fragrance, inspired by the beautiful design of the bottle and Freja Beha Erichsen, the campaign model. Along with the beautiful work of Bernadette Pascua (Decade Diary) and Kelly Smith (Birdy and me) the illustrations are featured on the Valentino Parfums website and on the brand’s social media channels.
I’m in love with the fragrance and really happy to be part of this illustration project!
I made a beauty illustration featuring Christian Dior’s new fragrance ‘Gris Montaigne’ for the german magazine FLAIR fashion&home. The May issue is available from today!
