African Print Fashion Illustration

I’M proud to share this African Print Fashion Illustration Series on youtube with you.

But I am WAY MORE PROUD to share this instagram post from Artisan Apparel Uganda.

I cried when I read the caption.

It’s a dream come true to be a part of something like this.

Ethical Fashion is everything.

Now I feel some connection between my love for fashion and why I’ve been called to it!

Have you see the movie the True Cost? It’s free on Netflix….check it out asap- excellent ethical fashion primer. Also search the hashtag #ethicalfashion!

Now here are the step by step TIME LAPSE VIDEOS of the illustration process from sketching to painting and rendering the beautiful African Print in the Fashion Illustration.
