Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday by Tania Orozco


Earlier this week I saw a mini doc about the Making of / Christian Dior Haute Couture SS 2015 where they show the whole process of making the pieces for the runway. I was amazed by the meticulous detail in each piece, the amazing colour palette in the long skirts and the clever way to do the hair. I immediately felt inspired so I decided to mix a couple of dresses and some accessories from this collection in order to create my own painting, to honor this Iconic Fashion house.

OK people I’m super pumped about how this painting turned out!…  Last night I got immersed in making the ribbons for the blouse and getting together crystals for the skirt. I glued over 60 Swarovski pieces… after all, it’s couture right? :-P

I’m super excited with the final result, I cannot stop staring at my painting… It’s definitely one of my favourites so far.

Below is the link for the mini doc and of course, my painting. I hope you like it and I always appreciate your feedback.

Hi there,

Today is a rainy #fashionfriday in Vancouver and I want to write about makeup. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, just some blush and colour on the lips and I'm ready to go, but I always find inspiration from MUA for my illustrations. I love the way they mix and blend colours, and play with contour and highlights in order to make crazy or casual looks. Believe it or not, watching tutorials on YouTube helps me understand how light works. 

One of the things I love about makeup is lipsticks, I love to wear crazy colours, especially dark purples and red tones. Having said that, a few months ago I found the brand #LIMECRIME which has crazy makeup products and a lovely branding. 

I was so intrigued by them that I started reading about the C.E.O Doe Deere so I started following her on instagram, since then, I fell in love how she embraces her style so I decided to paint something inspired by her looks and lifestyle for my Fashion Friday post.

She recently changed her hair colour and I love it, so here is the painting that I made. As you may know I love to give little twists to my work so I hope you like it.


BTW if you are into crazy colour lipsticks like me, I recommend you get the OCC lip tar primary colours test tube set (I got the test tube kit + Yellow, White and Technopagan), for me it's being like playing with paintings, I can mix different colours and get amazing hiper-pigmented long lasting lip colours. They are a little expensive but a little product goes a long way so you won't be spending a lot of money for I loooong time. I have them since last year and they are almost full. It's been a good investment. 

Have a lovely Friday people!

Hello World!

Today is Friday, yaaaaay!

So let me introduce another "post section" called "Fashion Friday". In this section I will draw some people, fashion collection pieces, accessories, etcetera, that I found cool and interesting. I will re-create this piece but giving it a little twist so my imagination can flow and I will not get trapped in copying the same image :-)

In this very first entry I chose to illustrate one dress from the beautiful collection "Alberta Ferreti MFW SS2014" that is inspired by South America folklore and... maybe "trompos" (Mexican toy)  :-P

So here is the final illustration. I drew the model in another position, but to be honest it's hard to imagine how the dress flows.

Enjoy and have a good friday!
