According to fashion illustrator, Ewelina Dymek, a captivating fashion illustration not only depicts clothing (which is, granted, very important) but also evokes certain feelings and creates a particular atmosphere.
“A fashion designer makes clothes not just to cover a body but to allow us to feel and behave in a certain way,” she explained in an interview with Inky Goodness. “By wearing a particular set of clothes, we can feel confident, easy-going, attractive, provocative, reserved, etc. A good fashion illustrator not only draws a piece of clothing but also interprets it in his their own way and is able to convey certain mood behind a designer’s collection.”
Based in Poznań, Poland, Dymek’s technique is a combination of pencil drawing, collage, and digital editing, which ensures her a lot of creative freedom. “My style has developed over the years through trial and error,” she admitted. “By experimenting with different kinds of tools I was able to see how I feel about working with them.”
Her humble approach to fashion meant that Dymek could learn from her mistakes and grow as an artist. Now considered a master of her craft, she has collaborated with brands like Bank of America, Condé Nast, GQ, and Vanity Fair.
