Kelly Smith – Fashion Illustrator

When you saw the title of this post, for a moment, you might wonder which fashion blogger am i going to talk about this time. Yes she earns her living through fashion, but no, she is not any blogger in this area. In fact, she is a fashion illustrator. I came across her works recently and i was pretty stunned by her drawing talent. I am someone that has (almost like) zero arty-farty genes in me. And to ask me to do a simple 3D, its already pretty tough for me. So i salute her for her talent that God has placed in her.

A little about her (adopted from Birdy & Me):

Overview:
“Kelly Smith is an Australian Illustrator, working predominantly in fashion and beauty. She has worked for a number of local and international clients including: Valentino, Armani, Jenny Packham, H&M, Samantha Wills, NET-A-PORTER, and The Sunday Times STYLE.

Her work has been published in the likes of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Hub, Russh, Flare, NET-A-PORTER magazine, TASCHEN’s ‘Illustration Now! FASHION’ and most recently in her own illustrated book series with Laurence King Publishers titled ‘Sticker Fashionista.’

Approach:
Taking inspiration from fashion, film and fairytales, Kelly’s fine detailed pencil work captures a likeness to her subjects, while watercolor and digital elements add subtle hints of color and softness.

Client List:

  • Valentino
  • Armani
  • Jenny Packham
  • H&M
  • Harper’s Bazaar
  • Net-A-Porter
  • VOGUE (AUS)
  • Samantha Wills”
