I was honored when Tanya Taylor reached out for me to create illustrations of her designs to be judged in the International Woolmark Prize event. The Council of Fashion Designers of America serves as Woolmark’s official nominating body in the U.S. The USA nominees were Chris Gelinas, Kaelen, Nellie Partow, Novis, and Tanya Taylor for womenswear.
The finalists are asked to show sketches for a Merino wool capsule collection.
Tanya’s team gave me rough sketches with images of the fabric swatches and pantones for all colors and I had to illustrate them as finished looks on models for judging. What a pleasure! I love the collection. Guess what?! Tanya won. I’m not at all surprised. Congratulations Tanya and team.
