Couture Fashion Week Recap…

Couture Fashion Week 2017 Illustrations by Joanna BakerCouture weeks are some of my favorite weeks of the year… the most amazing sketch inspiration is seemingly endless and I always have to illustrate my favorite looks! 

Usually I’ll wake up early to watch the shows live stream from Paris but I just couldn’t get it together this time around. We were traveling over the holiday weekend and there was a bunch to catch up on when I got back. But luckily, Vogue does a fabulous job of documenting all the pretty details! My favorites for gorgeous gowns are always Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, Ralph & Russo and Zuhair Murad. Here are close ups of my sketches along with their inspiration photos:
