Even for the most seasoned of show-goers fashion week can be a lot to take in; between four different cities, several international flights and thousands of camera clicks to every outfit, it’s easy to get confused just reading about it. It’s a good job then that multi-talented illustrator-cum-designer-cum-artist Lauren Rolwing has taken key looks by some of the most exciting designers around, and rendered them in her own highly recognisable style.
ACNE’s leopard print and Kenzo’s eyes become a work of graphic art in themselves, while the ever-cool Céline lady has both her accessories and her stance down to a fine art. Fashion illustration can be a tricky beast to execute in a way that does justice to the clothes themselves and still stands up as aesthetically exciting in its own right, so we’re delighted to see Lauren doing such a marvellous job of it.
