a-wang-2027-aw16-pw

BEAUTY TREND TO LEAVE TO THE PROFESSIONALS:

John Galliano’s Maison Margiela debut for the Spring 2015 Haute Couture collections lived up to the hype and the anticipation of this important moment in fashion history. To celebrate Galliano’s return and pay tribute to this collection, we have collaborated with artist James Forchione. Check out our interview below with the Italian fashion illustrator who is forging a unique and specific style of fashion illustration.

I draw because…
It gives me freedom to which I can express my creativity.

The purpose of my art is…
To use free flowing line to represent subject matter.

The biggest influences on my art…
Tend to be those that understand the human form and show strong personality and emotion in their work. The likes of Botticelli, Caravaggio and Egon Schiele are the reason I took an interest in drawing.

For me fashion is…
An extension of your personality.

At the moment I can’t stop listening to…
Big Jet Plane’ by Angus and Julia Stone.

A website everyone should check out…
8tracks.com, I always throw on a random playlist while I work.

London is…
A vibrant, creative and exciting city.

The labels I am looking out for this year are…

Caruso and Kestin Hare.

At the moment I am wearing…
Cavalli, Iceberg and Adidas.
