Fashion illustrations: What about them?

Editorials, photo shoots and campaigns are so widespread these days, there’s an undeniable level of saturation; fashion illustrations are a fantastic way of challenging this. Fashion illustrations render a link between the finished piece and that which is merely a drawing, for don’t all designer creations start out as sketches? Dignified and understated, Teri Chung’s illustrations capture the flow and vitality of designs from Jil Sander, Comme des Garcons and Balenciaga as does any photographer worth their salt. Something I’m looking to focus on more, is fashion illustration an untapped market? Or have I just been ignorant to it thus far? Overlooked by the mainstream media for the most part (I feel!), indie publications such as i-D and fashion photographer Rankin’s The Hunger magazine make great use of fashion illustrations, some of which I will post here for you all soon.
