Fashion isn’t just about clothing, shoes, and bags… it’s actually defined as the “general direction in which something is developing or changing.” Fashion is based on trends inspired by what society is facing.
So why are we talking about illustration? Well, to launch their new 2021 Autumn/Winter collection, Dior’s Creative Director, Maria Garza, recently asked five young female illustrators to reflect on the current state of female identity through their illustrations.
The five brilliant illustrators chosen for this exclusive project were:
- Aisha Madu (Duch-Nigerian animation director)
- Noriko Okaku (Japanese animation filmmaker)
- Fayolle Marion (French Illustrator)
- Barbara Cerro (Argentine filmmaker and animation creator
- Terry Cherubini (Italian Cartoonist)
Barbara Cerro, a talented filmmaker and animation creator from Argentina, astonished the world with her illustrious imagination. When asked how her illustration captures what it means to be a woman in the Fashion Animation World, she revealed “this short film narrates the dreamlike adventure of free, naked and comfortable with their singular, beautiful bodies, with an infinite creative power, who do what they want and what they please.¨
Barbara is a role model to aspiring women in all fields, not solely illustration and fashion.
