I feel like a little fashion inspiration. Above is Iconique Society Awards winning fashion illustrator, Choon Fai Yip.
"The Iconique Society Awards jury had a hard task; the standard of entries to this year's awards was truly outstanding. Entries came in from far and wide, indeed from every continent on the planet, with the exception of the North and South Pole. Entrants interpreted the theme 'Elevated' in a diverse number of ways, some taking the theme in a contextual sense, others literally. The entries across both the fashion photography and fashion illustration categories left us in no doubt that the fashion visual arts are breaking new boundaries both technically and conceptually, and on that note let us cut to the chase and announce the winners and runners-up...
The 'Excellence in Fashion Illustration Award' goes to Choon Fai Yip of Singapore for his entry 'Awakening of the Puppresses', which so impressed jury member Michael Dye, that he is commissioning the illustrator for a project for his label Dye4Gething, which he jointly runs with designer Debbie Gething. The first runner-up is Felicia Atanasiu of Toronto, Canada and the second runner-up is Adolie Day of Chavagnes en Paillers, France."
