When super was Super.

For a recent advanced fashion illustration class, I decided to take inspiration from the early 90s, when supermodels really were super, unique, and fabulous. I remember this photo shoot by Steven Meisel well, featuring the new-look Chanel, courtesy of its relatively new designer, Karl Lagerfeld.  It was totally Chanel and yet totally new. The colours were vibrant, the shapes were classic and yet fresh, and there was a sense of fun. Looking at these girls always made you feel like you were looking in at some very, very fun lives.  Because we were!

Hence the focus of the workshop – movement, colour, LIFE!  Expression over perfection, naturally…
