London Fashion Week Preview: Rachel Freire

Well, this week, along with website design (which is coming along quite nicely!) and dissertation writing (coming along less well..), I have been doing a couple of London Fashion Week preview illustrations for Amelia's Magazine. I'm really excited about doing a few one night deadline pieces for London Fashion Week, which starts on Friday. The rush that is needed is really exciting and can produce some great pieces! 

Before my love of fashion illustration took off (thank you Amelia!), London Fashion Week didn't mean much to me. Yes, I like clothes but I generally didn't really know what was going on. Now, I find it so exciting, love the clothes and love seeing photos taken on the catwalk!
My first illustration is of Rachel Freire and is for this wonderful interview with Matt Bramford. It's a great piece and I must say this is one of my favourite illustrations to produce so far! I loved how fascinating the clothes were and the detail I could add :) I hope you like it too!

Tonight I am doing another, this time with an over night deadline! Oh and before I leave, I now have a facebook illustration page, so please like if you like! :)


  1. Really nice detail :) keep up the good work Abby!

  2. A-mazing detail, good use of colour, do you use a tablet to draw?

  3. Thank you!! :)

    Yeah, I use my tablet to draw straight into photoshop :) xx

  4. You are sooooooooooooo good. I'm glad I'm following your blog.

  5. I love this illustration, its so soft and pretty :)
