SHOWstudio teams up with illustrator Laura Laine for Milan Fashion Week

Nick Knight´s SHOWstudio teamed up with Helsinki-based artist Laura Laine for a series of illustrations that depict Milan Fashion Week´s key looks. Laura interpreted with her distinctive black and white style some of the most striking creations of Prada, Versace, Fendi, Gucci, Jil Sander, Marni and Giorgio Armani and the result is simply breathtaking. Her unique illustrations were part of SHOWstudio’s daily reports from Milan Fashion Week, along with signature panel discussions, show reports and curated social media feeds, and really stole the spotlight. Of course, we couldn´t expect less from an illustrator that has already caused a big sensation in the fashion world with her thin, delicate figures and their trademark wind-swept hair and whose work has been featured in publications of the likes of Vogue Japan, The New Yorker, The Guardian, Elle or The New York Times.

Being the child of a painter and an art therapist, Laura was encouraged from a young age to draw and paint. She originally studied fashion and soon after finishing her studies, she began to work full-time as an illustrator. Laura, who is inspired by Kevin Smith’s movies, her boyfriend and the royal portraits of Velázquez and Hans Holbein, really loves fashion and she only draws women because, as she recently said to Writtenonskin magazine, men are boring to draw! She has shown her works at various exhibitions in New York, London or Sana Francisco and among her clients we can find Zara, Sephora, H&M, Gap and Daniel Palillo. We leave you with her dreamy illustrations that seem to have been taken out of a forgotten fairytale and we hope to show you more of her amazing work in the near future.
