I love fashion and viewing fashion illustrations like the next person. I have been taught in school how to draw a traditional fashion figure, which is typically a rail thin figure that is nine heads tall. I recently did a Google search for plussize fashion illustrations and was surprised to find that there was a limited amount of sexy, chic and fashionable illustrations. As an illustrator and a curvy girl it is imperative that I see images in the media, fashion industry as well as in art that reflect me. Honestly I hate the term plus size. Why women clothing and other fashion related items can’t be targeted to women in general? I understand the marketing components behind it, however, let’s be real. We both are looking for fashionable trendy clothing, flock to the newsstands to keep up with the latest trends and spend our money in popular retail stores. Sure there have been some strides made this year to answer that call. We witness the first plus size fashion collection that showed during New York Fashion Week. In efforts to do my part I’m celebrating curves with my fashion illustrations.

This was an illustration I did for my fashion history class. Ops I didn't read the directions correctly. The idea was to reinvent Little Red Riding Hood costume. You can choose any fabric or style. However, you had to explain the reason behind your choosing and select a fashion era. I jumped the gun. My first thought was I should do a drawing. I was gonna make her into an action figure with elements of the 90's from the Power Rangers and hints of 80's punk with the spikes. After reading the directions again it made since to scale it down an I gave Little Red Riding hood a 60's inspired look with a hint of 30's. No worries I revamped the idea and I'm sure I will get a excellent grade.

Jenifer Lopez the sexy business mogul has teamed up with the Mattel brand to produce two new dolls. The dolls entitled DollFace mirrored JLO's image, but there's is something missing? Her famous curves!! Barbie enthusiast can choose from Jenifer Lopez Red Carpet or Jenifer Lopez World Tour. The Barbies are priced at $29.00 and can be purchased in store or online. Question: How likely are you to spend almost $30 on a Barbie that is typically $10-12 bucks?Its a great move for Mattel to team up with JLO. From a marketing standpoint. The Hispanic community are one of the fastest growing markets and show no signs of stopping. Having relatable images of noted Hispanic celebrities displays a positive image for young girls in the Hispanic community. In addition Mattel's brand image in the doll industry reflect positive attitudes and maintains their good reputation.
