Fashion illustration used to be the only way of presenting fashion trends in magazines. However, with the development of photography the need for illustration vanishes and it becomes outdated and somewhat forgotten skill. It slowly loses its purpose and couldn’t even be categorized either in fine or commercial art. It has only recently been accepted as specific genre of art.

Although it’s not that common these days, the fact is that fashion illustration is very attractive and catchy. It can usually be seen in advertising campaigns of some fashion and beauty brands, but, unfortunately, not so often in fashion magazines.

Fashion illustration can be done using various techniques, like pencils, pastels, ink, watercolors and even collages, as well as the combined technique. Also, in this digital era it can be done completely or just finished in some of computer programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

I chose fashion illustration because it gives me a lot of freedom in interpretation of fashion and trends. In that way I express and combine my love for fashion, drawing and art. My favourite technique is aquarelle, but I also often make digital illustrations.

On this blog I will show you my fashion illustrations according to my current inspiration. I hope I will be able not only to present my view of fashion and art in the right way, but also to inspire you in some way and to encourage your creativity.


Modna ilustracija je nekada bila jedini način predstavljanja modnih trendova u časopisima. Međutim, sa razvojem fotografije gubi se potreba za ilustracijom, koja postaje prevaziđena i pomalo zaboravljena veština. Polako gubi svoju svrhu i čak nije mogla biti svrstana ni u lepe ni u primenjene umetnosti. Tek nedavno postaje priznata kao poseban žanr u umetnosti.

Iako se danas ne sreće često, činjenica je da je modna ilustracija efektna i da privlači pažnju. Uglavnom se može videti u reklamnim kampanjama određenih brendova iz oblasti mode i dekorativne kozmetike, a u modnim časopisima je, nažalost, retka pojava.

Modna ilustracija se može raditi raznim tehnikama, od grafitne olovke, preko pastela, tuša, do akvarela, pa čak i kolaža, kao i kombinovanom tehnikom. Takođe, u ovoj digitalnoj eri postoji mogućnost izrade ili samo dorade ilustracije u nekom kompjuterskom programu kao što su Adobe Photoshop i Adobe Illustrator.

Ja sam se opredelila za modnu ilustraciju jer pruža veliku slobodu u interpretaciji mode i trendova. Na taj način izražavam i objedinjujem ljubav prema modi, crtanju i umetnosti. Omiljena tehnika mi je akvarel, ali često se okrećem i digitalnoj ilustraciji.

Na ovom blogu prezentovaću svoje modne ilustracije u skladu sa trenutnom inspiracijom. Nadam se da ću uspeti na odgovarajući način da vam prenesem taj svoj pogled na modni svet i umetnost, ali i da vas na neki način inspirišem i podstičem na kreativnost.
