Remember Jessie? I took her photo last year on Capitol Hill in that amazing flour sack dress and I posted a photo I took of her on this same day with her mom Robin. Jessie graduated from Cornish last year where she studied fashion illustration. Her senior project sounds like it was incredible. She did pen and ink illustrations of historic ethnic bridal gowns from around the world focusing on local customs, indigenous materials and craftsmanship from various cultures. Needless to say, this girl has a deep interest in style and the way that people dress. In the two times we have run into each other I have been completely blown away at how unique her own style is. She comes across as effortless rather than forced despite the incorporation of difficult to pull off vintage pieces.
Jessie is interested in both fashion illustration and styling. Whatever she ends up falling into I can't wait to see it. I told her to be sure to get in touch if she gets a website going so that I can share it with you guys.
