Miss Magpie Fashion Spy

I Love Fashion Illustration! I loved it even before knowing the proper name for it. HaHa Illustrators are truly gifted with amazing talent. They're able to translate concepts, ideas and make things come to LIFE. They are artists. All of Vogue's covers use to be illustrations before the popularity of photography. I started pinning them on pinterest but got a little sidetracked. HaHa It's easy to get sidetracked on pinterest! But here's a website that has them all.

Well, the art of fashion illustration seems to be coming back. While perusing Instagram, some adorable illustrations caught my eye. The name of the site was called Miss Magpie Fashion Spy! How cute is that? After checking out the website, I found out it's a London based Fashion Design Consultancy owned by Niki Groom. Her company does illustrations, garment designs, embellishment, mood boards, trend reports and a plethora of other services!
I found Niki's work to be very charming, so I thought I would share it with you. You know I try to share the coolest stuff with you guys. It's amazing how she sketches fashion right off the runway or from an event. She even wishes celebrities Happy Birthday by sketching them in the most adorable way. Niki, if you see this post sketch moi! She's probably saying, who are you? HaHaHa I'm a starving blogger! Y'all don't tell her about all the sweets I like...Shhhhh! HaHaHa She also showcases all of the spectacular events in London! You know how much I love LONDON! Oh enough of my jib jabbering. Here's her delightful work. Enjoy! :)
and the WINNER of the Sparkle and Throw Out Fifty Things book Giveaway is 
Dawn of The Alternative Wife Blog
Congratulations Dawn! I'll be sending you an email later today!

Wishing Everyone An Awesome Weekend!

  7. I absolutely love fashion illustration - sometimes even more than the designs that result from the original sketches! And Niki Groom's sketches are seriously to die for, particularly because of the sense of humour and whimsy she adds. The Kate Middleton sketch especially made me giggle :) I absolutely must check out her website for more goodness, thanks so much for the introduction, Kim!
    xox,

  18. I feel there's a certain mood created in fashion illustration that you can't get in photography. I have to say I do love books like Sparkle--all done via illustrations. These that you've shown here are incredible . . .

  53. Her illustrations are so delightful! I love that they are full of life and colour. Quite the departure from the usual fashion illustration. Her style almost has a Japanese kitsch to it. Love it!
