New York Fashion Week - Live Illustrations for The Style Line

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Hello My Loves,

I hope you are all having a fantastic week so far!! Finally I found a quiet moment to myself to post my illustrations for The Style Line from this September's New York Fashion Week!! I could not have asked for a better way to kickstart my first month working independently as a full-time fashion illustrator. My last day of work was August 29th and by September 3rd I was cracking open my sketchbook to quickly live-render all the delicious looks at the WHIT SS15 presentation shown above and below this passage.

In the end, I illustrated from roughly 14 different runway shows and presentations, from backstage and beyond. I got to meet both Zanita and the Beckerman Sisters after Trina Turk and Jill Stuart. I illustrated Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha backstage at Noon by Noor. But most importantly I gained the confidence in myself to know that there was no turning back for me. I've found my place and I'm on this journey for the long haul. Catch all the NYFW action shots and final rendered pieces below:

  1. Love, love all of above! I can imagine how difficult it is to even draw a figure and get the look when models walk the runway! It is awesome when you can actually take time and have a model in front of you for a longer while ! :-) Fantastic job Megan!

  5. Your illustrations are so much fun :) I really enjoy them! How do you do it so fast? I take my time and enjoy the process of illustration so much, that I can;t work fast.

    PS: I took your advice and work with The Lovely It Girl :)
