It was another amazing year for Draw A Dot. in 2014, and I am very lucky to have the opportunities to work with and feature a lot of talented fashion illustrators around the world. Since today is the 1st day of 2015, I would love to use this opportunity to show you my top 10 most memorable pieces from last year (not include the Swide illustrations and Draw A Dot. WITH series).
1. Minjee Kang blew me away with this Chanel S/S 2015 illustration. I love the composition of the drawing, and cannot get enough of the whimsical vibes of the characters. I look forward to seeing more of Minjee‘s works in this year! [Read Here]

2. Johnathan Hayden created a lot of great short fashion animations last year, and this Valentino F/W 2014 one is my absolute favourite. It’s playful, elegant, and full of energy. No wonder even Valentino posted it on Instagram as well! Simply lovely! [Read Here]

3. Mahyar Kalantari‘s illustration style evolved in 2014 and many of his illustrations now include more than 1 figure to make the composition more interesting. The piece below is definitely the “define” moment of his new style! [Read Here]

4. Since the beginning of 2014, I have been keeping an eye on Svetlana Makarova‘s works. We have created a nice project for Draw A Dot. in the 2nd half of the year, and I also cannot get enough of this fun Fendi piece. What’s next? [Read Here]

5. At the end of 2014, I discovered Nuno Da Costa‘s works. I love his style a lot, as it is very smooth and soft. This Givenchy F/W 2014 piece is definitely one of my favourites. Too pretty! [Read Here]

6. This Alexander McQueen F/W 2014 illustration is one of my favourite pieces from Shamekh in 2014. I love the composition of this piece and it really shows the dark side of a fairy tale. I would love to see if the artist can create a sequel based on the S/S 2015 collection. [Read Here]

7. One of the most memorable illustration editorial has to be this by Natalia Jhete. I cannot stop looking at the images as they are nicely done, and each reflects the aesthetic of each brand flawlessly. [Read Here]

8. Gretchen Ellen Powers created one of the most adorable editorials in 2014. In this series, she dressed a few animals in the S/S 2014 collections. The illustrations are very whimsical and elegant! Well done! [Read Here]

9. JSK has created a lot of great illustrations in 2014, and this Givenchy F/W 2014 piece is my top favourite. The composition is great, and I love the garments on the Susu Girls a lot. It truly reflects the vibe of the collection. [Read Here]

10. One of my favourite illustrators in 2014 was Mélique Street. Her illustrations are always full of stories and motions. This Burberry Prorsum F/W 2014 piece really shows the atmosphere of the runway show, and Cara Delevingne looks amazing here! [Read Here]
