Fashion Artists & Illustrators

Fashion Artists & Illustrators works for sensational new designs of the future.

Futuristic ideas for fashion design is a rare and distinctive talent.  Fine meticulous drawings and artwork are required showing accurate depiction of the style.  It is most important  to capture a spontaneous flair and imagination to the culture, age of the moment and not forgetting the past.   Sounds a tall order, but I hope to show some extremely talented new up and coming Designers of our times.
