This illustration was for an interview with designer Bora Aksu for a preview of his collection for this year’s London Fashion week.
I was asked to illustrate something inspired by his last autumn/winter collection, which I found surprisingly feminine and delicate (for a winter collection anyway). The mix of materials, the odd-angled cuts, details and play on volume created interesting silhouettes that I found so different from the usual more tailored winter look. I also loved the contrast between the pastel colored dresses and the black and scruffy leggings. It breaks that whole girlie aspect and adds edge and an urban touch to the look.
