Graduate Fashion Week was a definite highlight of 2017 for me and it completely blew up on social media! From the run up to the event I connected with so many amazing designers, illustrators and creatives on Instagram making my feed so inspiring and creating so many new friendships in the process.
I wanted to do a post giving credit to the two talented illustrators who took their time to illustrate some of looks from my final collection. I was overwhelmed with how gorgeous the images were and think they definitely deserve some love. Illustration has always been something that I struggle with so I really do appreciate the time, effort and skill that it takes. Both of these talented ladies deserve some attention!

Kayleigh is a Fashion Design Graduate from Newport University and a freelance fashion illustrator based in Cardiff. Her ultra feminine illustration style captures the delicacy of this look perfectly, especially the embellishment on the bralet and the tulle detailing. She attended my runway show at the event and illustrated straight from the catwalk!

Georgie is a Fashion Illustration Graduate from the University of Brighton. Her quirky and unique style is shown throughout her colourful fashion illustrations. The image was inspired from another image captured from my Cry Baby Club studio shoot, I love the details on the tear drops on the coats and the facial features!
Heres to hoping there will be many more opportunities to inspire Fashion Illustrators with some more of my work in the future!
Fashion week always leaves us rife with inspiration. These two girls are talented. Hope they can succeed. Fashion needs a fresh face.
