Philip Treacy

I started this post a while ago and just recently got around to finishing this illustration for my feature here ( eeeks! :) ) on à la mode: fusion of effects.

The first time I saw his butterfly creations on the runway of Alexander McQueen, I was completely enamored. And recently, with the royal wedding, there was an increase in interest in his hats and fascinators everywhere.

Here I have illustrated a piece worn by Sarah Jessica Parker for the premiere of Sex and the City.

There were so many images of his wonderful creations but here are a few of my favourites. The infamous butterflies, my favourite picture of Isabella Blow and I love this dramatic image from Italian Vogue.

One day, I hope to own my very own Philip Treacy piece. :)
