Interview session with Careher
Earlier this month, I travelled to Taipei for a 'Meet & Greet' session and an illustration workshop, hosted by CAREhER, an online community that shares original content with career women of this generation.
During the event, I had the privilege of sharing my experience as a Fashion Illustrator with strong and beautiful CAREhER members. Among them were several working professionals, photographers and editors, some of them enjoy illustrating during their free time.
During the session, I talked about my journey as an Illustrator and gave some tips on how to regularly generate creative content for my social media platforms. Most of you know that Instagram has been a huge part of my career and I was happy to share how I started and grew my fashion illustration career through it.
Thereafter, a round of Q&A was opened to the CAREhER audience. It was so much fun engaging the group, whose questions and sharing have also inspired me so much!
Fashion Illustration Workshop
During my time in Taipei, I also held an exclusive Fashion Illustration workshop. The session was held in both Mandarin and English.
Elie Saab dresses have always been known to exude elegance, with a slight tinge of romance. The use of subtle petal-like embroidery and ombre tones perfectly epitomise grace and style. The watercolour techniques learnt were applied here to create the perfect ombre effect with subtle floral motifs.
Modern ripple-like silk organzas characterised Carolina Herrera's Fall 2015 Fall Collection. The focus of illustration this piece was to perfectly highlight the almost transparent light folds across the dress. Everyone did so well!
This is the 6th workshop I've conducted since I began illustrating and it has truly been a joy sharing my life's passion with everyone. I hoped you've learnt loads and I can't wait to visit Taipei again!
