Fashion Month Part 2…

fashion-month-joanna-bakerEven though I don’t follow them as closely as NYFW, I still love catching some of the shows in London, Milan, and Paris. And this season some of my favorites were Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Elie Saab, and Dolce & GabbanaContinue reading

Marchesa Resort…

marchesa-resort2016-joanna-baker-squareHow gorgeous was Marchesa’s Resort collection? If you missed it, you can find all the looks here. I follow them on Instagram and love seeing up close garment details and inspiration behind the line! I picked my three favorite “casual sunday brunch” looks and had so much fun rendering the details… meet my Marchesa triplets!

After a short work day, I’m off to the beach to enjoy some sunshine! Hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend!!

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!

P.S. – If you missed the Elie Saab show on Saturday… watch the video here. Karlie totally rocked it!

Delpozo Details…


Maybe it was the beautiful white forest backdrop or how slowly each model navigated the wintery set, but something about the Delpozo show on Thursday was absolutely enchanting. I’m usually drawn to feminine silhouettes and graceful details but Delpozo’s looks were so intricate and the shapes wonderfully exaggerated, I just had to draw my favorites!

From left to right, Look 35, Look 4, and Look 32. The beading detail and knitwear effects were stunning… and so much fun to render! Did you have any favorites from New York Fashion Week?? I wonder if we’ll see any Oscar gowns straight off the runways…

I’m off to Sunday brunch, then perhaps a quick trip to H&M to see Miss Ladyfinger in Time Square doing nails for the award show tonight. Maybe I’ll see you there!

Erin Fetherston @ Fashion Week…

Erin Fetherston’s Spring 2015 show was a dream… ladylike looks in lamé, brocade, eyelet, and lace; sheer layers, floral patterns, pops of yellow… it couldn’t be any more beautiful. Some of the shots I took from the end of the runway:

Here’s a quick video clip of the final walk… I would wear every piece!

With fashion month coming to an end, I’m ready to start thinking full on fall! Here’s hoping it’s fall-like where you are =)
