Diary Sketches Fashion Illustration Introduction

Fashionable, fun and one-of-a-kind art comes alive through Diary Sketches, the passion project that turned into a full-time job for brand founder and artist Laura Kay.

fashion, art and illustration, Diary SketchesInspired by the who's who and hottest trends in the fashion industry, Diary Sketches have caught the eyes of some of the biggest names in the business. Over the years, top designers, brands and influencers including Lord & Taylor, Chicos, Alice + Olivia, Kim Kardashian and The Blonde Salad's Chiara Ferragni have sought out Kay's custom fashion illustrations for seasonal campaigns, lookbooks, personal projects and more. Designer runway collections, award show red carpet looks and every day street style ensembles are displayed through Kay's pre-sketched art prints. She is also capable of capturing your likeness with one of Diary Sketches' custom portraits, which fit any occasion from a Valentine's Day gift to baby shower invitations.

For Laura Kay, it was never a matter of if she would become a fashion illustrator, but rather when. Spending much of her time flipping through fashion magazines and catalogs, Kay would draw, dream and create the clothing & designs she saw on their pages. Her girlhood dreams turned into a reality when she opened her Diary Sketches shop in August 2012. "My self expression is through my art, it was my diary, hence the name Diary Sketches was born," says Kay. "I truly hope to inspire and delight with my fun fashion illustrations and make the world a more colorful place."

Diary Sketches are available online at www.diarysketches.com ($15.00-$380.00). For daily sketch updates, follow Diary Sketches on Instagram (http://instagram.com/diarysketcheslk).
