Laura Laine is a successful fashion Illustrator that is based in Helsinki. She has worked for countless big companies such as Vogue Japan, GAP, H&M etc.
There are many ways she uses her fashion illustration in advertising, editorial or just fashion illustration. They are drawings by graphite and is photoshopped according to what she does her work on.
Her drawing is obviously photoshopped into a photo that shows a product that she is advertising. But what I like about this is that you can see that she carefully thought about the details of the girl illustration. You can see that her hair is flowing together with the bubbles going up. She also adds in the reflection of her drawing on the product’s mirrored surface. These delicate details are added to become such a great composition. I also like that there is Graphic Design included here, as I always wonder wether or not to major in Graphic Design or Illustration.
Another example is that she fashion illustrates for Clothing companies. As you can see in the above picture, the drawing does not have a background or a sense of environment but with her overall creative hair illustrations and clothing illustration she is able to create a beautiful and attractive composition never the less.

The above is just her own drawing for no special purpose but it is still beautifully composed.
I am very much inspired by this fashion illustrator because her work is very distinctively stylized her creative hair illustrations and the flow of the hair and clothing and also how she uses colors of just black white and gray.
Simplicity is key~
