I love you guys. I do. For reals! SO when a fabulous blogger reached out to me with her skills, immediately I had to share her with you! (Don’t worry; another plus size art will be back tomorrow) BUT, in the meantime, I had to share this work with you because it is THAT good! You know the Lane Bryant x Isabel Toledo collaboration launch and fashion show last week? Well, it was put to sketch!
Let me share this fabulous art with you:
Lane Bryant x Isabel Toledo Sketched By Fashionlistically Speaking
Crystal Caraway , the blogger and artist behind Fashionlistically Speaking shot me a note sharing her work and I had to share! When I asked her what prompted her sketches, she shared this:
“I’m inspired by all things aesthetically pleasing. My illustrations feature sexy confident women who are fiercely real. My biggest inspiration comes from the plus size bloggers that I follow. My artwork embody elements of their creativity and personal style. During any Fashion Week you can always find fashion illustrators interpreting the season’s hottest looks. When I heard of the recent Isabel Toledo /Lane Bryant fashion show I grabbed my markers and paper. My girls in this collection are giving you elegance, confidence and a little bit of sass. My main goal is to not think of curvy and plus size fashion illustration as a niche but as a reflection of today’s Fashionistas.”
Um, how amazingly talented is she?
