I make lots of sketches when I design. I love drawing and after putting together my ideas in my head I try to turn them into 2D by making sketches. It’s difficult because the designs are always in change until the moment they become lasted. My brother is a really talented contemporary artist (painter) and once he told me as I was doing my sketches that “Reka, you draw brilliantly, it’s a pity that you draw well nothing but shoes!” At least there’s a gap for him as an artist I said to him. And you know what? My designs are portraits of shoes so here you go three studies for shoe portraits from the recent fall collection.
