Evening dress sketch..

Ok , so I’ve been doing a lot of fashion illustration recently, and I was asked to come up with concept designs for a black evening dress with sequins, but without a slit. Something great for classy parties. Came up with this and I’ll love to hear your thoughts.

Ankara print design.

This was a fashion illustration for simply Victoria couture. It’s simple casual style 


perfect for a big party or a small get together.It’s Nigerian Ankara, its very pattern heavy so I tried to capture the exact pattern on the fabric that was used.

Black pride.

This was an illustration I did on black pride and feminism. Its common knowledge the challenges black people face, and also the ones that women face in today’s society. So it is safe to assume that there will be some challenges in being a black woman. Whether it’s in the constant buzz of the United States, the ambient elegance of France, or the crude splendor of Nigeria, black women face the same issues everywhere, a combination of both racial and sexual bias. Its something that constantly happens, and possibly something that is always going to happen. Being a black woman isn’t something you can change, nor is it something you should change. Rather you should own it, and define it, on your own terms. A black woman is always going to stand out, is always going to have an identity among black and white people. Its up to them to define that identity, whether they’ll become a symbol of mediocrity, or greatness. A black woman stands out, but a successful black woman doesn’t just stand out, she inspires, she turns heads and sparks conversations, she is a true symbol of power. Every black woman should try to look past the oppression they face, and strive to be the best they can be. Because when you get to the top, you’ll realize how much of a blessing it is to be a black woman.

I tried to make the illustration as basic and as straightforward as possible, I tried to capture the sketch model in a feminine, but strong pose, against a backdrop of the word “BLACK”. Its meaning is simple, a black woman is powerful, and she should be proud of it.
