Accessory Sketches for Fashion Snoops

Yves Saint Laurent SS12

Hello Darlings,

Finally I'm able to get back on my blog!! I've had such a wonderful week thus far. Full workdays and great evening events have kept me so busy. Anyways, I've wanted to share for a while now what has been occupying my time during the day these past few months. For those of you who follow my blog regularly you may have picked up on the fact that I've been working with a trend forecasting company since early September. Fortunately that has led to commissioned illustration work with them whereby I'm sketching the entire Accessory SS13 Analysis.

What does this mean exactly you ask?! Well, basically the lovely and talented Accessories Editor calls out key silhouettes for Women and Men. The callouts range from shoes to handbags, belts to headwear, sunglasses to earrings etc. I take the images of the identified styles and sketch the items using Adobe Illustrator. Our design clients intern take the sketches and input their own colors, patterns, textures etc. It has been such good fun and oh so fulfilling, although a little hard on the eyes. Might be time for a new MacBook Santa Clause ;)

Alright my loves, cheers to the weekend. I'm signing off to watch a new Modern Family...

Much love,
Meag xx
