Fashion Illustrations

Hello everybody,

it’s been quite some time since I posted any designs, that’s because I haven’t been competing but here are the last set of designs I entered into the Chicstar Design Competition 1  for your viewing.

Edwardian Victorian Lace Satin Gown Dress Fashion Illustration Design

Edwardian inspired full length gown with draping on the side, fitted/structured bodice with sweetheart bust. Lace over the fabric bust and panel over the waist for contouring but also over the bare skin of the upper body and arms for a sexy yet mysterious look. Faux pearls and cameo brooch on the front for a finishing touch.

Fashion Design Illustration White Black Lace Gown Maxi Dress

Strapless maxi gown making use of Black/White colour contrasting and accentuating the bust and waist. Lace panel over Black fabric down the front and an attractive yet practical slit on the front side.

Fashion Design Illustration Black Lace Gown Maxi Dress

Variant of the above, this is fully Black but with contrasting fabrics i.e. the main body of the dress would be a cotton spandex or ponte and the trim on the waist would be a matte satin. Again Black lace over Black fabric and a front side slit.

Thanks for looking and I hope you liked them!

Ballet and Holmes? I Like Quirky Combinations :)

Hiya all! 😀

Here are the last two pics that I’ve taken recently whilst wearing Chicstar clothing. The first pic features elegant wide leg pants, and a faux corset top from Next clearance.

The second pic features a unique pinstripe and ruffle skirt with lace-up ties on the side matched with a pinstripe peplum blouse I got from a cute little discount boutique I found.

Hope you like them!

The statue is one of my favourites in London; she looks a little lonely and strangely situated but I love her 🙂 The items I’m wearing include a floral embroidered Silver/Black corset style top with chiffon sleeves from Next.co.uk. I was a new customer so got a discount and the top was already on clearance sale so double the savings! The trousers are from Chicstar.com and are in the beautiful wide leg flowing style made in stretchy fabric. Unfortunately they are now discontinued.

At a very quaint specialty museum – small but very detailed 🙂 The Sherlock Holmes Museum can be found at 221b Baker Street (of course! 😀 ) London, UK. They have the best gift shop I’ve ever been into at an attraction, the gifts are very thoughtful, decorative and fun. I bought a an excellent detective board game (up to 4 players)!

The skirt I’m wearing is a fabulous couture design from Chicstar.com, it costs $59.95 and $65.95 in plus size. It also comes in Black fabric with Red stripes.

Here is the shop photo:

Top ‘o the week to ye! 😀

Here are my latest fashion/customer photo entries for Chicstar Competition 3 – posting a pic of yourself or someone you know wearing an item of Chicstar clothing. If you like them please click on the pics, which will take you to their ChicStar pages and why not take a look at the other entries. Perhaps even get involved yourself; it’s a great way of getting discounted clothing, it can be fun and it’s also nice to see the clothing on different people.

Tip – you get $10 for entry into the contest and could win an extra $100.

Retro Black White Satin Polka Dot Spot Belt Long Sleeve Top Chicstar

This is a fun top, I really enjoyed wearing it. The only issue is that it’s very loose and low cut, so if you tie it tightly at the back the open chest is pulled back wider and exposing more so you have to wear a top underneath. Also, when you tie it there’s a lot of extra fabric above the ties especially at the back. It’s ok but you just have to get used to it. I made this pic into a fun montage to represent the top’s retro fabulousness – hope you like it!

Black Jackt Blazer Gold Buttons Nautical Sailor Chicstar

This jacket is a lot more than it seems, the fabric is thick and very soft, almost like faux seude, very nice to the touch and it’s also very smart. The only issue I had with it is that it’s not fitted so even though it doesn’t feel very loose it can look it from the side and back but it’s manageable. The sleeves were a bit long for me so I rolled and pinned them inwards still exposing some of the awesome buttons. Those buttons really add character to the blazer.

The top from the first photo is now discontinued but the blazer is on sale at an incredible $19.95, it comes in Black and Navy and there’s only a few sizes left if you’re interested 🙂

New Design Edits by Request! Part 2

Welcome to part 2!

I also received requests to make my maxi boho dress into a knee length dress, which I did happily – it’s great to fulfill requests and make people happy with design 😀

Knee Length Boho Dress Blue White

The top part is in wrap style, with functional belt. The side where the bow is, should open a little way down the waist (to the end of the White fabric maximum) with either small discreet White buttons or a small zip so that it can be worn by stepping into it or putting it on over the head. The skirt section has two tiered sections. This dress isn’t supposed to be worn with a petticoat, it just has a lot of fabric/sweep which will move nicely when walking, I have just drawn the skirt section fully spread to show the sweep.
