10 Fashion Illustrators to Follow on Instagram Right Now
What's more satisfying after a long day than a sesh of Instagram scrolling and double tapping? To make your time on the 'gram all the more inspiring, we rounded up the ten best fashion illustrators to follow—each of whom will add a dose of whimsicality to any feed.
Donald Robertson, @donaldrawbertson (above) With 129k followers, the artist shows love to big Hollywood events, like the Oscars (above) and small lesser-known (but soon will be) brands like Flagpole Swim. Albertson is also a favorite of Kourtney Kardashian and has worked with mega-brands like J.Crew.
Katie Rodgers, @paperfashion
This New York City-based artist has a flare for creating ultra-fem designs that are sure to strike a note with every woman. Rodgers has perfected her skill for crafting plush ball gowns so much so that she has even created them using pancake batter, paint blobs, and crystals. Follow!
Martha Napier, @marnanidesign
Jamie Lee Reardin, @jamieleereardin
After a quick scroll through Reardin's Instagram feed, you'll notice the #thedailyscribble hashtag on images of It model Gigi Hadid, Alexander Wang's Fall 2015 collection from New York Fashion Week, and more. One of our favorites? The artist's hauntingly cool "scribble" above. Reardin's work with petals is also incredibly impressive.
Blair Breitenstein, @blairz
Blair Breitenstein's work is recognizable within seconds thanks to the signature faces she draws. Even when covered with rainbow Marco de Vincenzo sunglasses from the Fall 2015 collection that just showed in Milan, Breitenstein's personal style shines through.
Jenny Walton, @jennymwalton
You'll find that Walton's Instagram feed is inspiring in more ways than one: If it's not her artwork, than it's her chic #ootd posts that result in oohs and aahs. We especially love how Walton is inspired by runway collections, like Mary Katrantzou's (above), and how she manages to turn out work in what feels like seconds after the last model hits the runway.
Lena Ker, @lenaker
Lena Ker is a Russian fashion illustrator who recreates everything from major runway moments, like the Burberry Prorsum trenches (above), to whimsical pieces you would dream of hanging in your closet.
Samantha Hahn, @samanthajhahn
Hahn, whose art has been internationally exhibited from New York to Hong Kong, has worked with an array of brands including J.Crew, Marc Jacobs, Mac Cosmetics, and Tiffany & Co. (to name a few!). Follow her on Instagram, and then check out her Pinterest page, too.
Megan Hess, @meganhess_official
You know you're doing something right when Lanvin's official Instagram page regrams your work! That was the case for Hess when she drew Emma Stone wearing none other than Lanvin at the 2015 Golden Globes.
