You Need To See These Gorgeous Fashion Illustrations Featuring Rihanna

Toronto artist Michelle LeFade mashes up paints, crayons, and textures.

May 18, 2016

Toronto cartoonist Michelle LeFade finds inspiration in images of beautiful women and beautiful clothes. She takes images you might've seen before—Rihanna's i-D cover, pieces by British designer Craig Green—and flips them into emotive, larger-than-life collages and fashion illustrations. Various fabrics and digital images mash up with paints and crayons to create the textures of the swagger-first worlds her subjects live in. Browse more of LeFade's work here, and peep her Instagram for detailed close-ups and more.
