Our wonderful in house illustrator for the Spring/Summer 2013 couture season, Tara Dougans, has been busy drawing away as part of our Tara Dougans' Couture project. Dougans took residency in our old Bruton Place studio to illustrate the wondrous haute-couture creations from Dior, Chanel, Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Elie Saab.
To mark the occasion, Dougans has produced five exclusive GIFs for SHOWstudio in her signature, time consuming aesthetic. Dougans' intricate use of line and attention to detail is quite astounding and gives an other wordly quality to the garments which she has focused on.
Spectacular characters, immersed in pattern and paint work, stare intently back at you, luring you into the illustrations. Two tears run down the models face; a lament to the beauty of couture.
Check out the project now to see Dougans' wonderous designs!
