Spring 2018 Fashion Month Recap…

Fashion Month Recap by Joanna Baker

It’s been a long time coming but I didn’t want the year to end without a proper Spring 2018 fashion month recap! During fashion month I was crazy busy with work and travel during the week and then events on the weekends and ended up having a lot less free time to sketch my favorite runway looks. But I’m all caught up now and have immortalized my favorites and turned them into art. Without further ado, here are close ups of all my sketches! Let me know what you think in the comments below =)

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!
