May I present to you; Marc Jacobs – Fall 2016 Catwalk inspired illustration

Marc Jacobs Final AW 16

I LOVE Marc Jacobs. Not only do I love his collections, I love his creativity and showmanship on the catwalk. When Jacobs was the creative director of the French design house, Louis Vuitton between 1997 – 2014, he created an array of magical and sumptuous catwalk shows, each one like a mini cinematic narrative, where the set design encompassed the clothing designs. Jacobs now designs under his own name, and his recent Ready to Wear Fall 2016 show, did not disappoint, as he revived New York Fashion Week with an exuberant affair. Gothy black kohled eyes and painted lips, crocheted doily collars and sixty five heavily embelleished, manically layered designs, including one very real Lady Gaga. The collection was heavily loaded with references to Lydia from Beetlejuice, and various unnamed Ghosts of New York. An absolute pleasure to draw, with such eccentric models and stylised beuty, it allowed me to create a slightly sinister, heavily glazed eyed triptych of beauties. The girls remind me of kittens, large eyes, tilted heads and huge pupils. Beautifully vacant in a gothic, china doll kind of way… Enjoy! XX
