Plus Size Collection

Hello All,

I know I have taken another short hiatus.  I had to regroup to look for more fashion illustration and work on my own projects.  Since moving back to Mississippi, I had to create a collection that caters to the target market in my area.  More people are starting to design plus-size, but some areas within the plus-size market is not being tapped into.  Because of this, I wanted to create a line that I feel plus-size women would gravitate towards, especially during the summer months.

I am working on a plus-size swimwear line.  This market is very scarce because many fashionable plus-size women go to the beach, swim, etc., and they cannot find swimsuits that flatter their figure.  This swimwear collection was inspired by African prints and patterns.  So, with that being said, here is a preview of my plus-size swimwear collection.

What do you think?
Until Next Time!

New Fashion Illustrations

Hello All,

I hope your holidays were great.  My holiday was excellent.  As always, I have been keeping busy with freelance work, my fashion column, Fashion Corner, with my local newspaper, and as always, talking to you all.  I have created new fashion illustrations for you all to view.

The first fashion illustration is of singer, R&B and soul musician, and composer, Janelle Monae.

I really didn't have to do that much work with her face.  She is a natural beauty.
The second fashion illustration is of supermodel and entrepreneur, Iman.
Iman is also a natural beauty.  The only thing I had to do was add more detail in her eyes.  Hey eyelids are so gorgeous. What do you think?
Until Next Time!
