Fashion Fridays ~ Svetlana Makarova

Svetlana Makarova is a fashion illustrator based in Kiev, Ukraine. Without any formal art training, Makarova quit her job as a manager and began to teach herself. She studied Corel DRAW and eventually got a job as a web designer, moving to three different design studios before feeling ready to begin freelancing and concentrate on her illustrations.

With an interest in fashion from a young age, Makarova’s naturally veered in that direction. Her love of fashion and sensibilities for detail really bring personality to her characters. I particularly like her “New Old Tales” project in which she dressed familiar fairytale characters in the latest Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen collections. The juxtaposition actually works surprisingly well.
