I have been commissioned a while ago by emerging luxury fashion designer SUKI London to provide her fashion illustrations for her SS15 collection and invitation to the launch party held at Wolf & Badger. I focused on delicacy, watercolor washes and ink that resembled the meticulous lace used all over the beautifully crafted dresses.
The event was held at Mayfair’s Wolf & Badger, which was a perfect location for an intimate launch with fashion friends. The luxury theme of SUKI was supported by beautifully arranged refreshments!

Last night I ended up on a long bus ride all the way from East to West London.
That night bus trip that makes you realise that with most of the street/corner of the city you have associated memory and feeling with. I guess at that point most people settle down and feel comfortable they have tamed the city and already developed a bond, closeness and relationship with it.
For me this is the point where I get tempted to discover new alleys and allocate new memories with it and rebuild foundations.
I come to the conclusion that I’m a gypsy at heart?
I like to mix prints and patterns and I was feeling a bit bohemian – the hat always adds that feel. The elements of gold in it and also on the heels added a bit of electric feel to the boho feeling and brought out the spark.
Again with Zac Mahrouche we were exploring the Notting Hill. Enjoy the last day of bank holiday!
It looks like the spring has finally come to London and I always get so happy when the sun visits the streets of this vibrant city!
I am an absolute fan of graphic black and white and I continue the journey of this combination before the full blossom of flowers arrives. The Kenzo cap is definitely the focus of the look, but I decided to tone it down with a loose, semi-elegant shirt. The shorts and knee highs added a bit of playful element. In total I achieved a look which is sexy, quite elegant but also playful.
I am a huge fan of vintage and I could not help to have a peek into a pop up shop with absolutely beautiful selection of unique vintage garments. The extremaly large mirror encouraged me to strike some poses!
Enjoy the beautiful sun!

The exhibition of fashion illustration at H&M is unfortunately finished, but I am still living the beautiful memory of that grand momentum. The event was celebrated with the private view that was arranged at the H&M gallery of the flasghip store in Oxford Circus. The night was warm, breezy and definitely exciting. It was wonderful to meet the fashion illustration enthusiasts and of course the other illustrators that were involved in the project.

As part of the collaboration of H&M with London College of Fashion I have been given a project of every fashion illustrator’s dream. I won a competition for Fashion Illustration graduates to illustrate one of the H&M new season collections.
My illustrations have been arranged in the most representative part of Oxford Circus store – right at the entrance in the heart of Oxford Circus, where the heart of fashion world beats loud and proud. They are large scale prints and are set up with the mannequins.
In addition to this the 4th floor lounge at H&M oxford Circus will be transformed into a pop-up gallery, where all the projects are presented.
More photos from the launch party and event coming very soon!
The exhibition runs from Monday 16th March to Sunday 29th March in the opening hours of H&M flagship store in Oxford Circus from 9:00 – 21:00 .
I have been a Londoner for last 3 years but only recently moved to the West side of London. Once the sun started to come out it encouraged me to explore more of my neighbourhood. I must admit I am falling in love with Notting Hill area every day – after living 3 years in Highbury & Islington.
This is my very first look that I combined with the elegant white architecture of Paddington streets. I am wearing black and white to bring out the boldness of the architecture.
All the photographers were taken by a rising street style photography talent Zac Mahrouch – watch out for him, he is a real pleasure to work with and has a great eye and skills for very young age! http://www.zacmahrouchephoto.co.uk/
