D2G Apparel Launches The Runway: Limited Edition Illustrated Apparel Featuring Fashion Illustrations Inspired by Haute Couture Fashion Week.
If you have ever browsed this site before you know that we love fashion illustration and that it is our goal to be the leading platform for emerging illustrators worldwide to showcase their works. This month we have collaborated with illustrators based in the Ukraine, Poland, Atlanta and Ohio and I so happy to say that we have officially launched the D2G Apparel shop, appropriately titled, The Runway. Each illustration is based on the looks, trends and/or styles seen during this months Haute Couture Fashion Week.
The Runway features fashion illustrations printed on high quality apparel. All collection pieces are the result of collaborations between D2G Apparel and up and coming fashion illustrators from around the world. The Runway gives aspiring fashion illustrators a voice in the niche market of fashion illustration while providing limited edition pieces to trendsetters who truly want something unique in their wardrobe.
Recently we have been connecting with a lot of fashion bloggers and I am extremely excited to present this collection to the blogging community and to see not only how fashion bloggers will react to this collection but also how they will style pieces.
We were very happy to have worked with a group of illustrators who interpreted the looks, trends and styles seen during Haute Couture Fashion Week in their own unique way.
View some of the pieces and read a bit about the illustrators below:
Using a combination of pen, watercolor and digital techniques, Jennifer Madden’s illustration for “Jean’s Twin Paul” showcases the bold shapes that represent disillusionment, inspired by Jean Paul Gaultiers concept for his Haute couture Fall 2012 collection.
I love this one! I think it showcases the essences of Paris Fashion Week. Jennifer Madden used pen, ink and watercolor to translate the regal beauty of Valentino’s show.
That pout and trademark gap, we all saw a ton of this model strutting down the majority of Parisian runways earlier this month!
One thing Elie Saab has down is flattering cuts, deep color and loads of volume. A favorite by Karina Belikova.
Drawing inspiration from Elie Saab , illustrator Aleksandra Stanglewicz has interpreted the simple cuts, and focus on detailed embellishments seen during the Elie Saab show.
Aleksandra also did a Giambattista Valli illustration. Look out for it within the next couple of weeks.
Matthew Miller’s interpretive illustration showcases the yearning for nature and beauty together that conjugated in the floral arrangements adorned by the women of the Giambattista Valli runway.
