I’m slightly gutted that I’ve only just discovered Francesca Waddell, an illustrator with talent dripping from her fingertips. As I’m obsessed with Stylist Magazine, when I saw super cute fashion illustrations on their new sister site – Emerald Street – I just knew I had to find out more.
The style is very whimsical, feminine and fluid. Francesca says that “…the most important thing is to try to create something spontaneous and effortless, creating many, many drawings to get the right one.”
Her success is going from strength to strength, she’s already been commissioned to do drawings forVogue Turkey & Bloomingdale’s Beauty, Stylist Magazine and Tatler to name a few – and it’s clear to see why. With her unique artistic style, Francesca lets us see every day fashion in a new light.
