Fashion Illustration | Michelle Baron

December 03, 2013
Can I let you all in on a little secret...I have an obsession with fashion illustrations. You know...pieces of art that are so full of life and fun that you can't help but be happy when looking at them. Some of my favorite bloggers have gotten bridal fashion illustrations done and some even have their blog designed by illustrators. So when thinking of unique gift ideas for my mom and sister for Hanukkah, a custom illustration was at the top of my list.

Enter Michelle Baron! I found her through another blog (i'm sorry but I can't remember for the life of me which one...) and was blown away by her work! Within a matter of weeks I had a custom illustration in my possession and it was such an easy process. She is beyond easy to work with!! I sent a few pictures and gave her ideas of what I wanted the one for my sister's to look like. For the bridal illustration, two photos was all it took and she captured every single detail of my dress and look of the day.

I wish I took a photo of my sister and mom opening their gifts, their looks said it all!! It is a gift that is unique, one-of-a-kind and thoughtful (if I do say so myself).

Here are the pictures of the illustrations that Michelle created for me!

For comparison the top is what I sent Michelle for my bridal illustration:

Bad blogger moment - I didn't take a photo of the final product that came in the mail!! The image shows her information - but when complete and sent it's just the illustration you requested! 

So what do you think…Is a custom illustration anything you would do? 
If you are interested in getting in contact with Michelle you can link to her page in the blog or feel free to ask me! 

Thanks for reading!
