Fashion Illustration: My Newest Obsession

The Lady

I started blogging approximately a month ago and it has opened my eyes to a whole new world. It has been super liberating and learning everyday in style has been fun!

I dabbled in fashion Illustration and it fascinated me. The idea of birthing styles through lines,forms and colours felt like basking on the beach and listening to a sweet melodious sound.

I have been in situations where I had so much creativity stocked in a far away zone in my head and I just can’t seem to get it out.


Translating my styles to the seamstress other than my mother “Mummy Shakara” was like forcing a horse to the river to drink water.

It’s either I was bad at giving a visual representation of the style I had in mind or the seamstress could not decipher the style codes and patterns that I churned out.

Whatever it is, its inconsequential now because I am confident that acquiring this skill will eliminate the challenges I faced in previous times.

PS: The picture above is my first attempt! I am so proud of this.


  1. I can relate with this it wasn’t easy working with Tailor’s with the style in my head they never seem to get it so I just gave up.

    Nice work loving it…….

  2. It’s the best time to make some plans for the
    future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post
    and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or advice.

    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.

    I want to read even more things about it! Ahaa,
    its nice discussion about this article here at this weblog, I have read all that, so now me also commenting at this place.
    Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand a lot approximately
    this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I feel that you just can do with some percent to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, that is excellent blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.


  3. Cool picture! I would def wear the hat. Fashion design has been a dream of mine as well, but sometimes I lose motivation because I’m not sure how to get into the fashion industry and showcase my designs to the world.
