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.
Marc-Antoine is now considered as one of the world's leading fashion artists . He has a glamorous, elegant, out-of-time, sometimes quite cheeky style. With a great sense of aesthetics and observation, he captures the instant, with an artistic overview… often with a thick or blurred black line underlining the shape of his subjects, giving his style that unmistakable unique touch that one can instantly identify.
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.

The Interaction with Colour chemist, Maxim Sergeev
When Maxim gets to work, he already imagines in advance the colour scheme and the style of his future illustration. In his work, he tries to combine different styles and materials, the ease of watercolour fills and rough pencil lines, rich areas of gouache and sharp inserts of magazine clippings.
Joanna Layla Strips Bare her bachelors
When looking through her practice or latest work, Layla is really fighting with the process of reduction and stripping back. Many artists' contemporaries from Picasso’s Bull line drawings to Modernist Marcel Duchamp ‘Fountain’, was brought back to nothing, apart from how to re-encounter an object.
