Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration

I've been meaning to write up about Amelia's new book it but I've been a tad busy with some small commissions and my day time job.....anyhoo I received my copy of Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration a few weeks ago as I took part in the open design briefs (a big fat woohoo!!!) Along with the book I got a selection of 12 limited edition postcards which I've framed and they're proudly sitting on our Ikea bookshelf!

The open brief was to select an ethical fashion designer so I decided to illustrate Leila Hafzi S/S 2009 Utopia Collection (lots of floaty dresses) and Ciel. I also illustrated some articles to co-inside with London Fashion Week such as Antipodium S/S 2011 and Eun Jeong S/S 2011 collection.

It's a really beautiful book featuring some amazing illustrations. What I love about the book is the variety of styles and how each illustrator has their own individual page. Below are my spreads.

I'll be going along to the launch party on Friday 28th January, I need to buy a new dress for it and I'm most likely going to pop into Selfridges and get someone to do my make up.......! Looking forward to meeting everyone who took part in it i.e. those who use Twitter, though I don't know their faces probably be one of those things where I'll recognise their username!
