This photoshoot screams me! I based my assignments in second year at University on The Native Americans and I fell in love with their style/culture/fashion and I LOVE whenever I see it coming through in fashion now
So I have recently been given a creative assignment in class based around illustration.
We are to choose two well known illustrators who have very different styles, and we are to combine them together and create our own style.
I have chosen Nuno DaCosta and Yaeko Abe.
I find inspiration in both illustrators style and know that they will both be fun to work on.
Nuno DaCosta’s style is very sophisticated and high fashion.
I love how all his illustrations look like they are models from French Vogue.
He hand draws all his illustrations and works with Gouche, watercolour and finally Photoshop to perfect his art.
He has worked on campaigns with Dior, L’Oreal, Max Factor and Clinique among many others.
The second illustrator I chose was Yaeko Abe because the style seemed like so much fun to work on .
Yaeko’s work is very stylized and very detailed and so welcoming with such a bright palette.
Yaeko works mainly by hand with pantone pens but also combines illustrations with digital media.
Yaeko has worked with companies such as New Look, Elle and Elle Girl and many more.
I will soon be posting my interpretations of these Illustrators work and images of the style I have myself created with inspiration from these two talented artists.

The opening of the show was a micro minidress with beaded lace collar, which was accompanied by an over-sized fringe cape embroidered with turquoise, coral and red patterns. It feels like Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have their inspiration from Egypt or North Africa or Greece but wherever their inspiration are from, the design they showcased were beautiful.
Valentino’s collection is quite dark and dull but those embroidery embellished on those pieces bring the dull garments to life. The patterns are amazing on the dresses. Did you see the details they put on the dress? It is brilliant. The colors they used really comes well together. I want those scandals! I love the gold ornament on the scandals. There were a lot of dresses in…
