Illustration.Files: 12 Most Memorable Fashion Illustrations in 2013

2013 was an amazing year for me and Draw A Dot., as I had the honour to feature many amazing fashion illustrations around the world. Today, I want to use this space to share with you my 12 most memorable fashion illustrations in 2013 (not include the Swide illustrations and Draw A Dot. WITH series).


1. I still remember I instantly fell in love with this Prada S/S 2013 illustration by Velwyn Yossy when I first browsed her website. Her minimalistic illustration style has evolved throughout the year and I am happy to be able to work on one of the Draw A Dot. WITH projects with her this year. [Read Here]

2. It’s impossible not to love Bijou Karman‘s works, as she is probably one of the most versatile illustrators in the world right now. Her illustration world is always a bit strange, but beautiful at the same time. This Comme des Garcons piece is one of my favourites to date.[Read Here]

3. Nabil Nezzar‘s hyper surrealism work has a special place in my heart, and this specific editorial has really blown me away with his composition skills. Everything is perfect here to highlight the iconic F/W 2013 pieces. [Read Here]

4. I am very impressed with the illustration of Gerardo Privat F/W 2013 by Mario Rosales earlier this year as the details are simply stunning and I love the contrast between the girl and the clothes. I hope Mario will create more great fashion illustrations in this year! [Read Here]

5. Ignasi created one of the best campaigns for Joyce this year and I just cannot get these images out of my head. His surreal illustration style continues to amaze me and I am sure 2014 will be another amazing year for this talented artist! [Read Here]

6. António illustrated numerous fashionable girls in 2013 and all of them have a very sexy and mysterious vibe. Out of all the illustrations, I particularly love this Lanvin F/W 2013 girl. She just looks so vulnerable to me. [Read Here]

8. Artaksiniya is one of the illustrators who has continuously amazed me with her fashion works, simply because she always adds a new vibe to the collections. This Louis Vuitton S/S 2014 illustration has really captured my heart because there is this urban vibe that I have not seen in the runway show. [Read Here]

9. Caroline Andrieu is an illustrator who has constantly showed me the other side of a particular collection. I still remember when I first saw the Atelier Versace S/S 2013 runway images, I only thought of bold and edgy. However, in here, she showed me the soft side of this collection. [Read Here]

10. I was very impressed with Roxanne‘s university project earlier in 2013. In here, she created a look book based on the Alexander McQueen S/S 2013 collection. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and I am hoping this is not the last time I will be seeing her works. [Read Here]
