In this episode we will talk about Fashion Illustration and how it can be used by the Fashion designer both as a communication tool and as part of his creativity.
The tips shared in this episode can a be very useful example for young designers looking for a simple way, intimate and direct to the consumer (with low creation costs compared to financing a shooting campaign) to communicate his personality & style and express his creativity.
I found also very inspiring the genuine reaction of Gabriele Melodia who refuses etiquettes when presenting himself, namely choosing between Fashion Illustrator or Fashion designer. These are the two indivisible parts of his creativity. And allows him to cultivate his passions for History, Louis XIV, Human sciences, Literature, Languages (he speaks French fluently as you can hear at the end of the episode) and of course Fashion.
I am very pleased to take this time out during the lock down period of the Covid-19 to do this remote podcast with Gabriele Melodia from his native Palermo, in Sicily, where many other Italian talents in Fashion design are originated. Gabriele Melodia has recently graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo in the course of Fashion Design.
The illustrations and sketches of Gabriele Melodia are easily recognizable through his very personal touch and the use of lines and geometry.
