three fashion illustrations for amelia's compendium of fashion illustration, which will be out later this year. my ethical designer of choice is izzy lane, a tasteful, yorkshire-based knitwear company. izzy lane's mission is to save sheep that "would have been sent to slaughter for being male, missing a pregnancy, being a little lame, being too small, being too old or having imperfections such as a black spot in a white fleece" and give them a happy home. in addition to supporting the ethical treatment of animals, izzy lane keeps the british textile industry alive, utilizing victorian machinery, as well as local spinners and dyers. i hope i make it into the book!
(the top two are available as prints in my shop)
