Alfredo Cabrera - Fashion Illustration Reproduction, Part One - This was for an assignment for a Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University. We were to reproduce a fashion illustration, and I chose to draw one of Alfredo Cabrera's designs in his illustration style. The original illustration by Cabrera is on the right, while my version is on the left.
Alfredo Cabrera - Fashion Illustration Reproduction, Part Two - This was for an assignment for a Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University. In part one of the assignment, we were to reproduce a fashion illustration, and I chose to draw one of Alfredo Cabrera's designs in his illustration style. For part two, we were told to draw a fashion pose from a magazine in the same style as part one. The magazine reference is on the right, and my illustration is on the left.
Fashion Photo to Illustration - This was for an assignment for the Fashion Illustration class taken at Oregon State University. We were required to find a fashion photo of a model and illustrate it in our own style. The reference photo is on the right, and my illustration is on the left.
Scaasi Bodysuit Redesigning Project - This was an in-class project for Fashion Illustration at Oregon State University, where we were to redesign a pink bodysuit designed by Arnold Scaasi. In this image, I illustrated three designs. The middle design is the original Scaasi bodysuit, and the two outer designs are my more modern versions of the original Scaasi design. I chose to use the same fabric to create two different looks.
Striped Leggings - This was for an assignment for the Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University, where we were to draw two pairs of striped leggings. One pair was to be horizontal stripes (left design) and the other was to be vertical (right design).
Jeans - Straight-legged, Skinny, and Flared - This was an assignment for the Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University. Using three different poses for the croquis, we were to draw three different types of jeans--straight-legged, skinny, and flared.
Herringbone, Lace, and Tulle - This was an assignment for the Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University. For this assignment, we were to render three different fabrics, including herringbone, lace, and tulle.

Collection 01 - Outerwear - These illustrations were for a project for the Fashion Illustration class at Oregon State University. We were to design for a customer, and I chose to design outerwear for my brother, Kevin Ngo. Layouts can be found in the set called "Collection Layouts," under Collection 01.

Asian Fashion Illustrations, Set One - These illustrations were done for a class final project at Oregon State University called "Applications of Design Theory." For the assignment, we were to illustrate three fashion models as realistically as we could. I chose to illustrate Asian fashion, as I am fascinated by the culture. The reference images are here: http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g204/Eva_Valenti/DHE245LabFinalIMAGES.jpg
Asian Fashion Illustrations, Set Two - These illustrations were done for a class extra credit project at Oregon State University called "Applications of Design Theory." For the assignment, we were to illustrate three fashion models as realistically as we could. I chose to illustrate Asian fashion, as I am fascinated by the culture.

Ace Designs - This was my final project for a class called "Computer Aided Design for Apparel," taken at Oregon State University. For the project, I designed two looks and imported sketches into Adobe Illustrator CS5 to live trace and turn into vectors. Then I proceeded to color them in Illustrator and apply a background in Photoshop.
Coffee Style - These two designs were sketched out on paper, scanned in to the computer, and then colored and edited in Adobe Photoshop CS5. The colors were inspired by coffee.
Noctis.Lucis - Military Jackets - If I were to have my own fashion label, I would call it "e.Valenti" or "eValenti" and, within it, have two lines based on lightness ("Lucis") and darkness ("Noctis"). The names are in Latin. For these two imaginary lines, I designed military coats on paper, and then scanned them in to color in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Lucis - Ethereal - If I were to have my own fashion label, I would call it "e.Valenti" or "eValenti" and, within it, have two lines based on lightness ("Lucis") and darkness ("Noctis"). The names are in Latin. For the imaginary line, Lucis, I designed an ethereal look.
Noctis - Futuristic - If I were to have my own fashion label, I would call it "e.Valenti" or "eValenti" and, within it, have two lines based on lightness ("Lucis") and darkness ("Noctis"). The names are in Latin. For the imaginary line, Noctis, I designed an edgy and futuristic look.
Noctis - Monochrome - If I were to have my own fashion label, I would call it "e.Valenti" or "eValenti" and, within it, have two lines based on lightness ("Lucis") and darkness ("Noctis"). The names are in Latin. For the imaginary line, Noctis, I designed a look in mostly monochrome, with a touch of color on the tie.
Red Jacket - This is an illustration done with Prismacolor Pencils, featuring a red jacket (and a pair of sneakers to match) that I designed.
Lady GaGa-Inspired Dress - I took inspiration from Lady GaGa's wardrobe and incorporated it into a dress that I designed. The illustration was colored in gray and black markers.
Moroccan-Inspired Dresses - These dresses were designed for a project for a class called "Applications of Design Theory," taken at Oregon State University. We were to create a physical product that was inspired by Morocco, while utilizing the elements of design. I ended up taking the design of the dress on the right and making a small prototype of it for the project. The photograph of the prototype can be found in the set, "Handmade Clothing": http://www.coroflot.com/e-valenti/handmade-clothing/1
Fashion Figures - These illustrations were done before taking the class, "Fashion Illustration," at Oregon State University. I was looking through the required textbook ("Fashion Sketchbook" by Bina Abling, 5th ed.), and was inspired to try out some of the techniques mentioned in the textbook.
Pink Lady - This is a dress that I designed, with the concept of sheer, sequined fabric over solid black fabric. A necklace made in pink metal would be attached to the dress at the neckline. This illustration was drawn in a program called "Paint Tool SAI."
Candied Rouge - This is an illustration that I did in 2010 in Photoshop, using my Wacom Intuos3 graphic drawing tablet.
Collection 03 - Sinful Beauty - These illustrations were drawn for a collection project for the class, Fashion Illustration, taken at Oregon State University. These garments' designs were inspired by Alexander McQueen, and the theme of the collection is the Seven Deadly Sins. I tried to stay true to symbolic colors or animals (which was a bit more difficult; some designs may not reflect their symbolic animal at all). Here are the sketches: http://www.coroflot.com/e-valenti/sketches-or-works-in-progress/5
Fur Design - This was an assignment for the class, Fashion Illustration, taken at Oregon State University. I used Copic markers and Prismacolor Pencils to render short and shearling fur.
Quilting Design - This was an assignment for the class, Fashion Illustration, taken at Oregon State University. I used Copic markers to render channel quilting (on the coat's sleeves) and diamond quilting (on the torso area of the coat).
Kuchi Designs - This was for an assignment for the class, Fashion Illustration, taken at Oregon State University. We were told to draw two designs inspired by this Kuchi tribal belly-dancing belt that was provided in class: http://photobucket.com/Kuchi-belt
The Dahlia Coat - I designed this coat (I call it the "Dahlia Coat"), which can be adjusted to be different lengths by unzipping the tiers at the hem. I sketched the drawing on paper, inked it with some pens, and then scanned it in to color on Paint Tool SAI. I was inspired by the silhouette and color of a Guess coat that I own.
e.Valenti Amuse - "Amuse" is the title of my new make-believe line from my make-believe brand called "e.Valenti." It is supposed to cater to more everyday clothing (ready-to-wear), while "Noctis" and "Lucis"--my other make-believe lines--are more couture.

These four designs were inspired by Asian fashion (I looked around on YesStyle.com for inspiration).

I used Copic markers on sketchbook paper to color this.

Fashion Illustrations

These are fashion illustrations that I have done--mostly in the "Fashion Illustration" class at Oregon State University. Some other illustrations were done on my own time. Most of the traditionally colored illustrations were done in Copic markers or Prismacolor Pencils. The digitally colored illustrations were done in Adobe Illustrator CS5 and/or Adobe Photoshop CS5.
