In a former life, I spent many days surrounded by designer brands and amazing runway imagery. I’ve always been fascinated by fashion but on many different levels. There’s the obvious appreciation for the end results of the clothing construction the details that are directly before us. Also there is the placement on the person wearing it and the way it was styled to walk down the runway and the way that it is photographed. As I would turn the pages in my designer lookbooks, I would imagine how they would translate into gallery art. Throughout the work day I would sketch and create images that took naturally exaggerated forms and illustrator them into even bolder positions. These are a few of the books I was able to collect over the years that still inspire me today.
