Instagram has once again proven to be an amazing forum to discover fashionable artist with exceptional talent. I am dedicated to collecting as much as I can. My first commissioned piece of the year comes from German born artist KRISTINA CHAMOUN. Originally from Augsburg, Chamoun studied fashion design in Lebanon and is now sharing her love of illustration one post at a time.
I love customization because I believe it adds to the story and helps preserve the history. This sketch in my likeness will reflect a place in time and fashion. As a reference, I sent Chamoun pictures from a previous blog post featuring this snake print STELLA MCCARTNEY frock. I find it fascinating how colorful ink and blank paper can become art. Where illustration was once the primary outlet to communicate and share ideas, photography and film have taken over as the norm in the modern world. In this sense, fashion illustration has evolved from a necessity to a most respected art form in itself.
