I think when your interest in fashion was born after your love for art; you kind of develop an enthusiasm that is a bit of both - fashion illustration. What better way to show why I am particularly fond of it other than showcasing a Manolo Blahnik drawing? Admittedly, I'm not familiar with his work at all. But his drawings stamp such a firm print in my head that I go flipping through some recent Vogues so I can take some pictures of them (I only found one, as you can see).
His drawings are perfect: the shape, the fine details, the way light reflects off it and of course the actual design. I can't draw shoes, period. No wait, I can't draw a lot of things... And I'm not even being modest. So it's no surprise I'm left extra amazed at his talent.
Oh and after Googling more designs, I discovered he actually has a book named - surprise surprise - Manolo Blahnik Drawings. Something I'll definitely be hunting down.
