Joanna Baker Couture Week Fashion Illustrations

The couture shows last week did not disappoint! I got up early to watch some of the shows live stream from Paris and pick my favorites straight off the runways. It’s always hard to choose which looks to sketch as the inspiration is endless!

Couture Week Recap…

couture-girls-joanna-bakerLast week I was in complete sketching heaven… couture week was upon us and my instafeed was overflowing with inspiration. It’s always exciting when you have so many things to draw that you can’t keep up!

Giambattista Valli was by far my favorite… the proportions, the colors, the styling… it was all just begging to be sketched!! Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad also didn’t disappoint in a plethora of sparkles and gowns fit for queens. The Valentino show was very dark but very beautiful. I wasn’t as inspired to draw any of those looks yet though…  I think I’m still too much in a summer state of mind! =) A golden goddess from the Elie Saab show:

We had planned a visit to the country to see my family this past weekend but I knew I couldn’t leave my art supplies in New York. So I packed up everything and kept sketching on the go! Three sparkly looks from Zuhair Murad:

So many sparkles and so much tulle… it’s time for me to come back to reality but I just can’t get over these photos! Someday maybe Giambattista will be my everyday 😉 Have a fabulous week!

Paris Fashion Week…

The streets and runways of Paris have been undeniably gorgeous over the past week. My Instagram feed is chock full of amazing fashion and I can’t seem to get enough of it! Every day I’ve been waking up and drawing something new… and it’s been wonderful. This is look #27 from the beautiful Elie Saab Fall 2015 RTW show

What I really need to be doing is working on my fashion design portfolio so I can get some freelance design work lined up. But how can I concentrate when these boots are all over social media!? I had to draw them quick yesterday before the hubby and I went to weekday brunch. (He was away all weekend but took an extra day off yesterday so we could spend it together… love him!)

The weather was perfect and we could feel spring just around the corner… it’s coming, it’s coming! Everyone seemed to emerge from their tiny new york apartments yesterday and pour out onto the streets just to see for themselves that the sun was in fact shining and the snow was in fact melting! Yay =)

My lovely blog readers, I hope you have a happy and productive Tuesday! I’ll be {hopefully} sitting down at my desk and working on my design portfolio… will definitely share work-in-progress pics if you follow my Instagram!
