Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson's Spring/Summer collection shows 70's influences. Think bellbottoms, high waists and pleaded trousers and knits. 
Sunbleached silk dresses are ruffled by parachute chords and held up with leather bands. 
I love it!

House of Holland

I'm not having the best day to draw. I have had a huge headache for days now and I am a bit distracted.
But tomorrow is my birthday and I am baking cupcakes! And while there are in the oven, I watched some more London Fashion Week videos and was inspired to draw a model in a House of Holland dress sitting on a cupcake.
At the London Fashion Week Henry Holland showed a collection of metallics, plissé, ruffles and bananaleave prints. His Spring/Summer collection is very 70's but with a Holland touch.
This is a light blue dress with metallic stars and large pockets and yes pompom earrings!!

Jason Wu SS 2011

Just watched a video of Jason Wu at New York Fashion week and did this illustration of one of the dresses.

For inspiration, Wu said he’d looked to the seventies and forties, and the vivid floral paintings of the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. The flowers and the color brought out print dresses with multi-petaled skirts, silk city sarongs, and chiffon blouses. 

I especially love this petal dress:
