My grandmother, who is an astounding artist, told me that when she turned 18 she packed up her bags out of St. Paul, Minnesota and took the first flight she could to New York City in order to become a fashion illustrator. Though her dreams were thwarted by the onset of WW1, her love of fashion illustration lives on through me.
Unfortunately… I am not artistically gifted myself, but one of my favorite illustrators is Caitlin McGauley. Caitlin has a wonderful store in which you can buy her prints, she has also been featured in places such as Lonny Magazine (an exquisite online interior design magazine.) She does the most stunning watercolors of whatever happens to inspire her, whether it be a Kate Spade shop, or a beautiful portrait of Tory Burch. I recommend checking her out immediately!
