Collage has never been a particular interest or forte of mine, so I wasn't incredibly excited when we were to do a lesson in it at uni.
What I didn't realise was that combining collage and fashion illustration was the perfect way to stretch my skills and I ended up loving it!
There was so much freedom and it was exhilarating to create something beautiful out of existing art and photography, not to mention the inspiration from the materials I used; so many beautiful colours and textures.
I mostly used fashion magazines but also incorporated a catalogue from an art exhibition, wrapping paper, a year-planner and some paintings I'd done last year... These were the results:
So that was my endeavour into fashion collage, I enjoyed it immensely and will definitely come back to this style occasionally.
Remember that I love your feedback, particularly when I try new things!
