Eight Great Fashion Illustration Artists to Follow on Instagram

Design Lists Fashion Illustration

When we think of fashion the first thought that probably comes to mind is some of our favorite brands. Some are ones that we love to wear and other are those we dream about wearing. Some are what we plan on purchasing next and others are what we see on the runway and dream of wearing if just for fun. From the everyday to the special event, fashion is constantly contemplated. One part that might not be as thought about, but is definitely deemed worthy of time, is fashion illustration. Fashion illustration is the creation of new couture but without needing to focus on the buttons and zippers. As Megan Hess states, fashion illustration only has limits of the human imagination. Here are some fabulous and fun fashion illustrators to follow on Instagram.
