Yet another project I worked on during my blog downtime seeing the light of day today!

I worked with indie dressmaking pattern company Gather to illustrate the packaging for their patterns and kits. I wanted to evoke the feel of vintage pattern illustrations while still looking totally contemporary and showing the structure of the garments accurately, which was a nice balance to work out! Sandra and Caroline of Gather were awesome to work with – there’s this tricky harmony of strong direction and creative freedom which is hard to get right, but totally the sweet spot when being commissioned. I’m especially happy with the colour palettes for these gals too, lots of pleasing complementary shades.

They patterns look super cool and are beginner friendly so check them out! I’m pretty heart-eyes-emoji about the The Buchanan dressing gown, above.

Ashiiiiiiish. Always one of my favorite shows to shoot and this season I got to do backstage which perked me right up (which on day 5 of fashion week, is saying a lot). I ran out to front of house and ended up crouching (the glamour of fashion) right next to two girls who were equally obsessed. As every look came out they were exclaiming YAS! YAAAAAAAS! in the style of yas gaga, which is a flawless review of the collection if you ask me. YAAAAAS ASHISH, YAS.
