The third season of the fashion show “Magnifique by Cristina”, presented by the stylist Cristina Cordula, for which I am an fashion illustrator, ended last June, so I said to myself that this is an opportunity to look back on some of my sketches I did for the show.
Characters and looks designs
I have already shared a lots of fashion looks, but much of the silhouettes that were created for this show on Teva has not been shown here.
In fact, I design fashion looks before each issue that illustrate all the advice given by the designer based on different body shapes, situations, trends etc.
Here are 7 lots of 5 female characters, each with a “yes” or “no” noted next to them.
Let’s have a look at why some of these fashion looks are a “NO”.
1st Figure: The skirt is too short for a professional meeting.
4th : The bermuda is not flattering on legs with thick calves.
In this lot of photos all the looks are a « YES » Don’t be scared to give them a go !
2nd character: too low-cut dress for a job interview.
4th : Forget ballet flats if you are too small.
2nd : With a V shaped body it is better to avoid loose clothes on top.
5th woman : To be chic in the rain forget suede boots, they will get damaged! (And you may fall over with such high heels)
4th : If you have large breasts, forget knit dresses too close to the body.
1st Figure: horizontal stripes should be avoided when we have round arms.
4th : colorful outfits to go skiing, that’s fine, but not too much!
As you have seen, the idea, for me, as an illustrator, is to make people understand why the drawings are a counterexample.
Until the next season in September, you can find all the fashion advice of Christina Cordula and / or review excerpts from the show on TEVA channel website.
