Matthew Chow just keeps going.
I always had an interest in drawing, as far back as I can remember. Illustration runs in my family, although it was never pursued in any serious way.
My grandfather was an oil painter, my mother and father both drew as children, and my uncle is a talented illustrator turned architect. I was always encouraged by my loved ones to pursue and practice drawing.

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.

The Art of Feeling Empowered with Gabrielle Fotch
Fashion, like art has always been an important part of my life. Just like any other visual art, fashion is a tool to show the world your personality, express yourself, who you are, what you like and what makes you unique. I feel the most confident when I’m in an outfit that I truly love and that’s exactly what I like to convey with my art. I like to depict people that are empowered and confident. And of course, I love the overall glamour and sophistication.

Roxy's Heart for Fashion Arts
I usually arrive at the atelier around 10/11 in the morning, get a cup of coffee and decide what I want to do today.
Sometimes I have client work which will be done first, most of the time I create personal work. Then I work until around 6/7 and when I get hungry I go home to eat. Oh and I take pole dance breaks since a few weeks since I just installed one in the atelier. Great way to get some new creative energy!
Partnerships are better
Over the last year, Fida has partnered or collaborated with numerous Luxury brands and designers. We look forward to sharing our new partnerships.
If you would like to speak with us regarding partnering or working together, we are always happy to hear your ideas.

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!
