Fashion Sketch Meetup - Would You Rock This

Love fashion illustration?  It's an art that is both rare, but highly evolved over the past few years.  Would You Rock This is a website that celebrates amazing fashion artists of all styles.  The site lets you join a community where you are invited to exhibits and events for fashion illustration.  You can vote on whose style is your favorite or buy prints.

During NY Fashion week, artists were invited to create fashion sketches live during fashion shows.  I joined their Meetup group to take part in some of their events.  My first was this past Sunday, with a sketching session hosted by Steven Broadway, my beloved fashion portfolio teacher many years ago from Parsons.  (Yep, those are my little sketches from the session above).

His flair and encouragement made his class the one I always looked forward to each week.  He played club music to keep it festive.  This session was no different.  He had three different models on hand offering diverse looks.  Clothing-wise, he offered a wide range of clothing to sketch, from evening wear, punk, office looks or fur.

While in school, our class stuck to assigned media. The artists in this class had a large range of materials, from painting, digital tablets, charcoal to markers.  It was really good to sketch by hand with a model again.
