Originally this article was going to be about top Instagram accounts to follow for upcoming fashion weeks. But there are only so many pictures of macarons, flowers, pigeon-toed shoes and other nonsense one can suffer through before you get to the good stuff – you know, the actual clothes and shows.
Instead, here are 10 fashion illustrators you should follow on Instagram for fashion week. Some of them will be live-sketching at events, while others might recreate the looks afterwards – and some just draw people with clothes on.
Whichever way it goes, their beautiful mark-making is much more interesting than another perfectly manicured hand gripping a Starbucks.
10 Fashion Illustrators to Follow on Instagram for Fashion Week
Blair Breitenstein @blairz
Loose portraits of melancholic, alien-like models.
Scott W Mason @scottwmason
Big black lines with primaries and plenty of s-p-a-c-e.
Duangkamol Suthumachote @daydream.drawing
Soft, dreamlike marker work (and occasionally fishes).
James Davison @jamesdavinsonstudio
Slightly aggro, sexy punk stuff. A bit NSFW.
Cristina Alonso @cristinaalonsoillustration
Gorgeously girly, super-pink. Just enjoy it.
Rachel Merrill @ohhhaeee
My notes say “Tin Tin style fashion illustration”. Very cool.
Colourful, vibrant and particularly like the work on grey ground.
Rambling Miro-style lines and puddles of watercolour.
Puffs of pastel and models fading into the background.
Monika Kozak @mon_and_ka
Slightly creepy block colour people.
