My friend Rachel asked me to create some artwork for her Spring Fashion week presentation invite -Her darling clothing designs are inspired by tap dancers, ballerinas, screen stars, acrobats and dress up. I don't have all of my paintings I created on my desktop- but below are a few of the pre-sketches I made before the final product. I wish I could have been there in person to see the trapeze artists swinging in these cute shorts and dresses
The presentation was at the Henry Street Settlement Playhouse. The concept was a dress rehearsal for an imaginary production titled Magic to Do, and she called on some theatrical pals to help bring to life her themes. On hand to model was BFF Alia Shawkat, better known as Maeby from Arrested Development, as well as New York City Ballet dancers.
