When the bigwigs in fashion such as Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Saks Fifth Avenue and the likes recognise your work and give it a platform to showcase or collaborate, one knows they’ve arrived! Such is the story of Blair Breitenstein whose fashion illustrations that exude an expressionist take on contemporary high fashion has created a wave. Breitenstein takes her inspiration from fashion photography and gives the fashion-forward photos a spin with her water colour palette and messey smudged lines with markers, pastels and pens. She takes on the rich, luxuriously-pampered spoiled women who live in a bubble and are obsessed with themselves–and gives it a cool, punk-rock twist of her own. Breitenstein often impeccably captures the odds, eccentricities and quirky-yet-chic world of fashion in her art.
