Illustrations are such a celebrated craft in the fashion industry that names like Mats Gustafson have built legendary careers out of them and collaborations with artists from the field are big affairs for brands. At Female, we too have had our fair share of bespoke illustrations landing on our pages: the most recent ones are in the Oct issue which featured four up-and-comers dreaming up exclusive drawings inspired by the Fall/Winter 2018 runway looks.
To get a fresh perspective on next season’s riot of colours, I figured it would be a fun outing to see how my doodling-obsessed and monster-loving nephew Syakir Rizqi will see fashion through his six-year-old lenses. The result was an eccentric version of Spring/Summer 2019‘s hottest colours paraded by — what else but — an imaginary posse that includes an ogre, feathered beast and fantastic creatures.
