Tanya Ling Illustrates Louis Vuitton 2009 Cruise Collection

Posted on: Jan 6

Tanya Ling is turning heads with her recent collaboration with Louis Vuitton. The London-based artist has produced the prints for the fashion house's 2009 Cruise Collection.

Fashion illustrators tend to fade into the background, creating beautiful pieces for the magazines and ad campaigns without any real recognition. But not Tanya. Her elegant watercolor designs in pretty pastel shades have forced the public to sit up and take notice.

The dizzy glare of the spotlight is a world away from Tanya's birthplace of Calcutta. She was raised in Africa and America before moving to London where she studied Fashion Design and Textiles at Central Saint Martins. She kicked off her career as a designer before discovering her passion for illustration.

Tanya became firmly entrenched in the psyche of the fashion world after working with Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Jil Sander, Harrods, Diane von Furstenberg and Loewe.

Her current collaboration with Louis Vuitton is not the first time she's worked with the famed fashion house. In 2003 she produced the illustrations for its second jewelry collection. Clearly Marc Jacobs and co. liked what they saw, as they invited her back for another high profile line. Looking at these beautiful artworks, I can't say I blame them!
