Fashion can be aspiration, it can be the lure or lust for all things pretty, or it can even be a state of mind at a given time, but out of all feelings and emotions, for many, fashion is about being dreamy.
Turning Fashion into a dreamland where stylish fantasies take form, seems to be the new fun way taken by an immensely talented fashion illustarator – Laura Laine. Coalescing and combining two different Medias to create a fascinating new picture, the young artist has created some of the most sensuous and beautiful fashion illustrations of all times. Laura Laine fused her unique style of illustration with simple product photographs and brought them to life by making her delicate fashion figures have an enjoyable interaction with the fashion products, thus making the visual look like, almost straight out of a fashion lover’s dream.
In the series of visuals that the illustrator created for Elle Russia and Muse magazine, one can see graceful little fashion divas created out of intricate pencil drawings, playing with beautiful and iconic fashion commodities; like there is one where a lovely lady is lying possessively on a Prada perfume bottle, one gracefully sewing beads into a Chanel quilted bag, one taking a leisure flight in a parachute hung bag, and then one peeping softly through a YSL bootie window. All visuals represented the sheer love and desire for fashion that the artist herself beholds.
What bowls one over is the fact that Laura Laine is no older than just 25 yrs of age, but how with her spectacular talent she has gotten herself an impressive list of clients including Zara, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Iben Hoej, Daniel Palillo, and even got published in one of the best publications that include – The New York Times Magazine, Elle Girl, The Guardian, Muse magazine, Páp Magazine and many more. The young artist studied fashion design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki, with a focus on fashion illustration and has been freelancing ever since for the biggest brands of the industry.
One of the main unique characteristics of her illustration is the style in which she draws the intricacies of her drawings. Her predominant way of using the pencil so minutely in varied shades, that it clearly brings out the texture she wants to portray, be it fur, silk, tulle, leather and most importantly the hair on her models body. Her signature long mane mostly flows elegantly and delicately giving a beautiful movement to the complete body posture. Lura Laine is one of the few great fashion illustrators of today who don’t only have the talent to draw but also the imagination to bring out the unthinkable.
