When it comes to capturing the best fashion moments, most people choose a camera, but this man opts for a pencil instead. Hayden Williams' fashion illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and not only does he capture the looks, he calls the trends as well. While some people are focused on the image in front of them, this illustrator sees much more than just a pretty outfit.
From models to street style stars and everything in between, Williams surely has an eye for all things fashion. After being self-taught at a young age, he decided to pursue his artistic interests in college, and it paid off. His specialty is high fashion, and the illustrator has landed his pencil on models and other celebrities who have timeless style.
"In the midst of studying, I would share my sketches online to platforms like Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram," Williams says to me over email. "Over time, I garnered a really strong following. Before I knew it, the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, Pharrell, Oprah and Mariah Carey were all showing my work love."
It's not only the stars that are interested his illustrations. With over one million followers on Instagram, it's obviously that people love what he does. He's already collaborated with Rimmel London and Disney, but he has even bigger dreams in his future.
"One of my ambitions is to have my own fashion label one day. I think becoming a fully fledged brand is something I am always working towards," Williams says.
With his drawing skills, this dream could easily become a reality. He posts his own sartorial creations to Instagram on top of sketching out existing style icons, so it looks like the sky's the limit for this illustrator.
