Keeping her Cool - Fida winner Nadia Coolrista
Basically, I draw every day, normally during night time. I get my inspiration from fashion shows, fashion magazines, fashion photographers, models and odd things around me from time to time. I wouldn’t say I have a lot of work as a fashion illustrator however I do have a lot of self-initiated work for promoting myself as a fashion illustrator to help get the attention of the companies, designers and creatives in the industry.

Fida in collaboration PETER DUNDAS
Dundas became design assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier , where he stayed for eight years. All the while building up his experience, in 2000 Dundas moved to Lacroix, where he developed a sense for striking colours and patterns. After a stint as creative director at Emanuel Ungaro, Dundas was appointed artistic director at Emilio Pucci, owned by LVMH, in 2008, before returning to Cavalli.
During his seven-year tenure at Pucci, Dundas developed the brand’s history of glamorous, colourful and patterned collections. Focusing on nightlife as a key inspiration, Dundas took Pucci in a new, youthful direction. It was under the creative helm of Dundas that LVMH identified the label as a key future-growth vehicle, branching into new product categories such as shoes, handbags and eyewear.
Nuno Da Costa
Nuno was appointed the official illustrator to the newly relaunched Vogue Portugal.
In 2018 he became one of only a handful of illustrators to be featured on a Vogue cover in recent history when his work was featured on the cover of the English language luxury edition of Vogue Portugal, launched at the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference.
Cecilia Carlstedt has been working as an illustrator ever since she graduated from London College of Communication in 2003. She spent several years in London and New York but is now lives and works in her home town Stockholm.
Carlstedt's has worked with a wide range of clients but is principally linked to the world of fashion. Experimentation is an integral part of her working process and she utilizes various techniques in her work such as spray painting, screen printing and collage. Her clients include, W, Vogue, Salvatore Ferragamo and Anya Hindmarch.
RICHARD HAINES ON FIDA
As social media expands and we are inundated with image, fashion illustration has never been as important. Not as a competition to photography, but as an alternative way for a viewer to process: fashion illustration lets us interpret, dream and fantasize in wonderful ways! Long live fashion illustration!
MASSIMO NICOSIA - ZEGNA
It is about time to go back to fashion illustration and explore very forward thinking new applications valid off/on line. In Image making there is room for original, inspected, disruptive new ways to describe the narrative in any collection and brand aesthetic...
in ADV, editorials and surely for the endless need of digital contents.
Vogue Italia January issue triggered one (among others) possibilities.
