The Gucci gang is back for another round! Are you ready for it?

On April 1st, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) released a statement – Hedi Slimane has exited the fashion house.
Hedi took over the creative director position in 2012 and since then Saint Laurent has become one of hottest brands in the fashion world. From 2012 to 2016, he successfully created a new identity for the brand by adding the rock & roll element to the collections.
March 7, 2016 was the day he ended his YSL era on a high note. The 80’s inspired F/W 2016 collection was a tribute to Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent and every look was memorable.
No one knows when Hedi will return to fashion scene as a creative director, but one thing for sure – we will always remember the collections he has created for Yves Saint Laurent. At Draw A Dot., I have invited 15 illustrators to pay tribute to this glorious era.
This is Part 1.
It was an intense 2 weeks in the Draw A Dot. community as many illustrators have submitted their works to the latest Valentino F/W 2016 Countdown Illustration Open Call! While we still have to wait to see who is the winner of this open call (it will announce soon on Valentino Instagram account), here are some of my favourites!
Part of the reason I love fashion illustration is because illustrators can create their own fashion fantasy without boundaries. When this kind of fantasy is mixed with fairy tale, everything just becomes more interesting. Here is the latest series created by Camille Pfister!
