Jacqueline illustrates for Four Seasons magazine for their Fashion issue

I was recently commissioned by the luxury travel brand Four Seasons to illustrate in the Fashion issue of their third issue. Articles to illustrate included a fascinating read by SC Stuart showing the impact of Artificial Intelligence on fashion design and where the future is taking us, by keeping a track and logging information on existing designs/trends. The next feature by Amanda Mull was on catwalk representation of women of many physical abilities and sizes. Finally I was asked to give my opinion on present fashion trends and for my take on reinvented designs from leading brands’ archives. I decided to work digitally on the iPad Pro, which is still a lesser area of my work, the suitability for the articles seemed most relevant. It’s always good to have some editorial work as a freelance illustrator as this is still our best showcase, seeing one’s work in print.

Some recent iPad Pro digital work for collections Spring/Summer 2018

Emporio Armani invites Jacqueline to produce digital fashion illustrations for the Emporio Armani / Marie Claire fashion 'roadshow'

Just back from an exhausting few days in Glasgow and Manchester with Armani. I was invited to draw portraits of guests on my iPad Pro, which was linked up to a 2metre high monitor. This had been set up 'portrait style' so was huge! It was such a unique idea and I had quite an audience, not great for the nerves but once 'into the drawing zone' I loved it!

The customers were gifted their prints on the night which were mounted and framed.

It was a pleasure being surrounded by such gorgeous clothes- the Emporio range is stunning. There was also a presentation by Marie Claire's Fashion Editor, Jayne Pickering showing key looks for the season. 

It was great to be part of the Armani team and the staff were great, I'm looking forward to being part of their Xmas promotions in Selfridges in December, more details to follow...

 

Jacqueline illustrates The Arch window for GP Studio for London Fashion Week

Had a fab time a couple of weeks ago drawing directly onto GPStudio's huge arch windows in Southwark, South London. Drawn on March 2nd, I started at 11 am and finalised by 6pm. It was my first time drawing ion that scale and on glass. The post pens were a joy to use, going smoothly onto the window and even 'wet' enough to splash- which is something I love to do! I draw a rough on the outside glass first of all as the final piece would have to be drawn back to front otherwise it would not 'read' well! I think the hardest part was actually writing back to front as i'd featured designers and wanted to 'credit' them. Featured designers included House of Holland, Emporio Armani,Peter Pilot, Mary Katranzou. Click here for GP Studio's page on their Arch Window- they are always looking for new artists!

Spring Summer 2017 collections of Balenciaga, Prada, Chloe, Armani, Miu Mui and Bottega Veneta

Self directed seasonal 'sketchbook' working from the latest collections from luxury brands and top fashion houses. Loose watercolour inks splashed around the page to portray the new candy bright colours of Spring/ Summer 2017. Featuring Balenciaga's fabulous Spandex trouser/boot combo with more than a nod to  1970's disco. There are a lot of early '80's influences around at the moment in both colour and styling.
