Irina Ivanova is a fashion illustrator and a visual artist. On the website fashion-accent.com Irina presents her fashion-themed figurative art and fashion illustration. As a professionally-trained fashion designer, Irina's inspiration with fashion, style and costume grew from her fashion design and fashion illustration background.
As a visual artist, Irina is represented by Art Visions Fine Art Licensing Agency and has presented her fashion-inspired art at two solo art shows and at numerous other art shows. She creates her artwork in a broad range of media, including watercolor, pencil drawing and acrylic on canvas.
Unlike conventional fashion illustration, Irina's art is not limited by one look or style only. As a professional fashion designer Irina understands and appreciates versatility of fashion. Her fashion children characters are whimsical and charming, her historical fashion inspirations are elegant and stylish. She creates figurative art with fashion accent or she brings art into fashion illustration, - but in the end she is always fusing what we know as fashion with art and illustration.
Irina gained her interest to stylization from her Russian heritage reinforced by love of Russian art. Stylized figures in her figurative art settings and fashion illustration pieces are ranging from grotesquely exaggerated to elegantly touched with style but they are always stylized.
You can see Irina's artwork on the website of Art Visions fine art licensing agency, which provides exclusive representation for licensing of Irina's art. However, even her floral designs and landscape paintings carry this dash of style or touch of fashion which is "fashion accent". Decades of fashion design and fashion illustration practice are manifested in this "fashion accent" of her artwork.
Apparently, "fashion accent" in her art is as much a part of her personality as Russian accent in her speech. Irina creates her artwork in her home-based studio in Hallandale Beach, Florida. She teaches fashion illustration and fashion drawing and publishes resources for fashion illustration. You can contact Irina via this form.
