Inspiring Spring.

For many years I have been a huge fan of runway fashion trends, and as an illustrator my work often closely relates to the trends seen on the catwalk.

I am really inspired by the Spring trends this year, and I have utilised these colour and pattern inspirations in my own greeting cards. Floral patterns are often a running theme on the catwalk (always much more sophisticated than the fabric used for granny's curtains) and the pastel hues used by many fashion designers at the moment are gorgeous. 

I have put some photos from the highlights of the catwalk alongside my own designs. You can definitely see a subconscious inspiration in my designs.
