Designer: Oscar de la Renta
When I saw these outfits made by Oscar de la Renta, I was blown away. Especially the left one is so beautiful, with the doll-face and everything in white, with the combination of textures, just: perfect. I started to make an illustration with these outfits.
Under the photo on the site of Peter Stigter was written about (fake) fur and I wondered if these outfits were fake/real...Well, they have all kind of soft accesoires made from fox fur and rabbit fur on their site. Very dissapointing and uneccessary. More and more fashion designers are developing garments using fake fur. Prada, Vivienne Westwood, Victoria secret, Miu Miu, Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli. Karl Lagerfeld even made a whole line!
I usually don't make statements with my illustrations. It's not that I wanted to make one, but when I was drawing, I just couldn't stop thinking about it. So if this is my first illustration with a statement ever...? So be it. To all the free furry animals!
