Illustrations for Latina Magazine - March Issue

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Happy Tuesday My Darlings!! 

I hope you've all had a fantastic February (the month of love and FASHION WEEK!!). I cannot believe it is almost March already, apart from the fact that I was anxiously counting down to see the latest issue of Latina Magazine on newsstands now. I'm so excited to show you the accessories I illustrated for their March Fashion Closet Column. It was such a joy painting these back in January. A color palette of warm gold, peach, pink, and kelly green, had/has a girl dreaming of Spring.

I'm signing off to go search for my next illustration references but promise to be back soon!!

Much love,

#NYFW Illustrated Top Street Style Picks

Saturday, February 8, 2014

Hello My Loves,

Happy New York Fashion Week!! Though I have yet to make my way back to the city that never sleeps, I've been watching from afar all the happenings of Lincoln Centre the past two days. Between attending Paris Menswear Fashion Week in January, and watching the influx of #NYFW Instagrams and Facebook posts, I couldn't help but notice the overlapping street style trends in these two cities.

When I arrived at JFK on January 17th for my flight to Paris, I stood behind a very stylish, quintessential French girl for check-in. She wore a bejewelled beanie, gorgeous pastel wool overcoat, and Nike Air Max sneakers. It was uncanny to me how similarly we New Yorkers and Parisians were dressing alike. Above is my illustrated roundup of fashion week street style trend picks from here and abroad inspired by the chicest ladies :

Paris Fashion Week Men's FW14

Sunday, February 2, 2014

Happy Sunday Lovelies!!

I cannot believe it's already February 2014. January was such a wonderful whirlwind which brought the approval of my O1 Outstanding Artist's Visa, as well as a quick jaunt to Paris (photos here) to see my boyfriend debut his FW14 namesake menswear collection ABASI ROSBOROUGH. It was such an extraordinarily special trip for so many reasons and I feel beyond blessed to have experienced it with my love.

I've never been to Paris for Fashion Week before, certainly not Menswear, and it was so incredibly cool to see buyers from around the world zipping throughout the streets of Le Marais where we were staying. We attended fashion week parties at Silencio and the original Le Baron, and I even enjoyed my last brunch at the now infamous La Perle where I practiced my French with a zippy Parisian male server.

I'm back in Canada now for the obligatory visa switch, with the agenda of painting on the brain, so stay tuned for some more illustrated posts to come!!

Much love,
Meag xx
