Four Illustrators Capture Fashion’s Finest

We might be biased, but we don't think there's anything quite as beautiful as fashion and those who do it well. Now, as bloggers and models are becoming celebrities in their own right, sartorially inclined illustrators are turning to them for inspiration. We looked to the web for our favorite artists who are training their sights and pens on the people who make the fashion industry tick.
Aurore de La Morinerie's style of illustration is lush; She does abstract interpretations of famous faces in the industry like Grace Coddington, Susie Bubble, and ethereal face-less models. She started her career working for publications like Le Monde and Elle. Techniques utilizing wash painting deep ink stains give her art the kind of suggestive, surrealist quality we can't get enough of.
Fashion illustrator Cedric Rivrain works out of Paris and sketches the faces of the runway's most notable models and designs. Kate Moss and Natasha Poly make numerous appearances in his online portfolio (for good reason), and he never fails to pay homage to the most artful of designs that each season's shows have to offer.
Danny Roberts made fashion bloggers everywhere jealous when he immortalized his favorites in a portrait series that eventually resulted in a Forever 21 T-shirt line. At only 24, the artist, who uses line drawings and watercolor paints, has made quite a name for himself documenting fashion's most forefront of faces.
Illustrator Coco's work has appeared in the pages of Nylon, Vogue, and Elle, and she also sells a line of scarves and turbans, Forget Me Not, that feature her collage-like drawings. She starts her designs by drawing or painting but then creates the final-image on the computer for that super-crisp edge.
