Fashion Show illustrations for promotional material at Bellevue Collection fashion Week in Seattle

I had a large project to illustrate the scene of Bellevue- a luxury shopping mall in Seattle during the summer for their Fall 2019 runway shows. I had to fit a certain amount of figures onto the background which were also to be used independently for billboards, flyers, VIP passes and giveaway tote bags. It was a lovely job to work on and was great to finally see the printed material in September.

Trend report for Autumn/Winter 2019 illustrated by Jacqueline Bissett

Jacqueline illustrates the trends that we should be looking to wear this Autumn. New trouser shapes include wide and flared hems in jeans, large scale checks worn with capes, tight bodysuits and large fake fur jackets. Lace dresses and blouses featured at Yves Saint Laurent and Christopher Kane. Colour blocking featured widely among the collections at Ann Demeulemeester , Gucci, Prabal Gurung and Nina Ricci. Utility is a huge trend at Stella McCartney with large florals and capes abound at Richard Quinn. Oversized windowpane checks including giant dogtooth were shown at Chanel with elegant hats which featured, bucket-style at Gucci and Nina Ricci and many others. Accessorizing is huge this season!

Enjoy your new looks for the season, always a favourite after wearing flip flops and shorts all summer!

Melanie Sykes' The Frank Magazine asks Jacqueline to illustrate her favourite summer outfit for their second issue .

I met Melanie last year when she visited my studio to be sketched by me & to interview me for her blog. I guess her idea of featuring ‘interesting people doing interesting things’ grew into something more and she has now got together with a team and launched a wonderful online magazine aimed at women over forty. With refreshing articles on everything from health& well being, fashion, beauty, travel, motoring and cuisine, it’s an interesting read.

For the second issue I chose a wonderful outfit by VB Victoria Beckham’s range which is so cute- I love the sunglasses print and cute ruffled skirt. Her collection is full of sharp cutting and flattering asymmetry. pu can read the second issue here https://issuu.com/thefrankmagazine/docs/frank_magazine_june_july
