My workspace started to shrink by the
day. Stacks of paper, magazines, materials, etc. were taking over my room. I
finally took some time to clean up, re-organize my workplace and a excellent
moment to archive my latest work. This illustration is one of my favourites and was a experiment with disposables. This time a pair of scissors and a hobby knife were my working tools too. I choose one of my favourite looks from the Louis Vuitton FW 2012 collection and a nice pose. Then I cut out the coatdress from a yellow discloth. A first I didn't know how to create the squashed Stephen Jones hat. The next morning I baked an egg for my son Issey, I threw away the empty brown egg carton, and there it was ... , ... my Louis Vuitton hat, in the trashcan. I used the egg carton to cut layers for the giant hat. I could now continue my collage. I then painted the hat and coatdress in the right colours. The big and oversized sunglasses are glassbeads, the enormous crystal buttons are bubble wrap and sequins. With other scrap material I finished the platform pumps in the collage. This illustration was so much fun, something completely new for me. The moment I felt the excitement again watching this illustration, I knew I wanted to share more of my work with you. So please feel free to visit my website NHMILLUSTRATIONS and see more new work. Right now my workplace is ready for another new fashion season, hopefully full of new fashion favourites. Enjoy, Nancy

With his Resort 2014 collection ALEXANDER WANG shows his deep respect for the Balenciaga’s House’s codes. The collection has the signature of Balenciaga big volumes, shapes and refers to self-taught designer Cristóbal BALENCIAGA.
Today Wang shows his interpretation, of the ultra modern, elegant and feminine silhouette with this sculptured petaline, volumed and ovoid shaped bolero-cum-bra top. The colors black, white and grey where continued from Wang’s debut collection for the House.
I love to recognize the typical signature of the Spanish Basque designer and founder of the house Balenciaga. The talented designer created ultra-modern but yet so feminine shapes. The tunic dress, the high-waisted baby doll dress, the balloon skirt, the sack dress and the cocoon coat were like sculptures.
His use of heavy fabrics, the so called bracelet sleeves and the collars that stood away from the neck.
