Laura Laine

Laura Laine is a surrealistic fashion illustrator from Finland. I found an interview with her from the March 2009 issue of Nylon magazine, and this is a segment from it:

Q: "How has fashion illustration changed now that photography is so ubiquitous?"
A: "Before photography was commonplace, illustration was used for its informative value and was very literal. I try to bring something more to it — a specific mood, a feeling, the thoughts fashion awakens in me."
