Video // MARIA JERNOV
Hey! Ever wondered what it’s like at the international fashion weeks? Maria and I has been working on this little video showing you an exclusive look inside at the biggest shows, backstage with supermodels and getting a preview on the collections just the day after they hit the catwalks! Enjoy us sing at the end and just being silly all along!
Illustrations by me
As you might remember, I’m attending my final year at Margrethe Skolen. And for my final project I’ve chosen to work with fly fishing as inspiration for my womenswear collection.
This week I’ve begun the pattern making process, and I’m so excited to move the proces along to sewing.
I love sitting in front of the machine watching stitch for stitch how it develops from fabric to clothing.
But this post was actually supposed to cover my fashion illustrations.
During my time at Margrethe Skolen my drawing skills has increased more than I expected.
And likewise my love for using hours to get the exact right feel to my illustrations.
The drawings above was made in hand with black pen, then scanned and put together digitally.
Then filled out digitally with watercolor patterns that I made in hand.
All in all a project thats been taking almost the entire weekend. But at least I ended up with a result that I’m truly proud of.
What do you think of them?

It has been an amazing week, and though it’s sad it’s over, I’ll soon be back in the rush.
I’m going to Paris in a month experiencing the Paris fashion week for the first time.
I’m already in a major wardrobe crisis but let’s hope it’ll all turn out all right!
I’ll enjoy the excitement and some junk food now!
Fashion Illustration from my project The Black Armor
My ideas for the illustrations was of cause to reflect the details in the dress, the camouflage print, the zippers, the shiny fabric with stitches and the tough army feeling. “This is not a dress, it’s a uniform”-ish. I used a 4H pencil to make outlines, and rough sketches, copied the best and “colored” it with black ink. Scanned it into photoshop to lay a final touch of contrast, exposure and so on(and gave some of them faces) . Finally I tested out my ideas with the girl and the reflection and the girls lined up waiting for orders.
Do you understand my ideas and my concept?

Print mixing, because how amazing is leo with camo, right? I wasn’t really sure about this outfit as first, sometimes to many prints can be, just exactly to many prints.
But the cool graphic print on the dress, combined with the rough camo print and the sassy leo boots. I think it works very well with a hint of street from the cap and the classic black tote with the beautiful gold details.
I’m quite happy about this outfit, how do you feel about it?
