These Shoes are Made for Drawing
A Collection of Virtual hand made drawings by Dasha Gusarenko.
Quick thoughts from Dasha working from her home studio in Ukraine and shared via a chat on Instagram with Fida.
How are you working now due to the global pandemic and restrictions?
I work at home, but I dream about my art studio. I like vogue.com and use references
from this website.
You created drawings of shoes and products using old techniques how comes?
I wanted to show something new or something unusual. In addition I like to draw accessories and I tried to select collections with different accessories.
Where is your i-Pad being a younger artists?
I worked digitally, but .. it’s not my cup of tea. I prefer live drawing when I can feel materials. For some time, I worked in the textile industry, produced clothes and drawings was like hobby, but sometimes you need something to change and I decided to mix drawing and fashion. I have never drawn by colour pencils, that why I started from this technique. The tinted papers are perfect for this style.
What are thoughts on fashion Now?
These fashion weeks have been very interesting, because we have some new conditions and designers have had to come up with different ways of showing their collections.
I like so much, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’s new partnership and their show with the open-source interview. It was an amazing video!
