We have a tendency to go weak in the knees when we see a truly spectacular fashion illustration. Talented sketch artists have the ability to make our favorite fashion icons, models, and designs look fresh and sometimes even better than before. We’ve rounded up our favorite illustrators for you to follow on Instagram. The newest way to “collect” art perhaps? #YoureWelcome.
1. Lena Ker
This may be one of our favorite images of Cara Delevingne, and that’s saying something. We aren’t the only ones who love Lena Ker. The Russian fashion illustrator’s pencil and watercolor images have appeared in numerous international magazines.
2. Melissa Corsari
Artist Melissa Corsari hails from Milan, and has collaborated with numerous style blogs. Her seemingly strategic use of white makes the clothing she sketches pop off the page. Most of her figures have pouty lips and cat eyes, all of which we happen to adore.
Like Rihanna, Cher, and Madonna, Swedish illustrator Irica seems to go by her first name only, and we’re into it. Maybe it’s because her cool, colorful designs speak for themselves. We certainly can’t get over her unique depiction of our favorite front rower.
The artist behind @inkmode is a mystery. He? She? was born in Siberia and is now based in Sweden. What we do know is that we can purchase prints of this illustrator’s playful designs. Who can resist this depiction of Anna Dello Russo riding dirty at Milan Fashion Week?
5. Fait la Mode
The fashion illustrator behind @faitlamode is a 17-year-old Londener. It doesn’t get much cooler than that. We love how she layers her designs on top of photographed images, giving her work a 3D feel. Of course, this talented teen has her own Tumblr that you should probably follow as well.
6. Pippa McManus
Pippa McManus‘ illustrations have an amazing rock and roll vibe to them. The artist, from Perth, Australia, relies on various mediums to create her large canvas images. High rollers can call her about a commissioning a work.
