Fashion Week Illustrated: NYFW SS 2020

Bringing back this series of posts, featuring sketches of my favourite runway looks from each Fashion Week. Kicking off the month is New York Fashion Week, and I’ve got my best sketches below. I played around with style a bit this season, trying to loosen up and keep things fresh and exciting.

Alice + Olivia

I always love the aesthetic of this brand. The silhouettes and fresh spring colours immediately drew me in. There were a ton of looks I saved from this collection but for times sake I had to narrow it down to three. I worked in a graphic style for this because I wanted to place the emphasis on the shapes.

Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera always strikes me as so elegant. A perfect combination of classic and feminine. The large folds and beautiful floral prints is what caught my eye for these pieces. I picked style more reminiscent of my usual quick sketch aesthetic.

Marc Jacobs

Always a popular show to sketch, this particular look I thought would be great to play around with textured brushes. I’m happy with the graphic yet soft result of this one.

Cong Tri

This is a new designer for me, but the minute I saw this rainbow gown pop up in my feed I immediately knew I had to make a sketch. I originally tried this one out in watercolour a couple of times, but soon realized the colours alone don’t create a strong composition. I switched to a digital sketch to allow me to play around with various ways to add structure to the dress as well, and I’m so pleased with the result.
