Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration launch party illustrations: meet Naomi Law

Naomi Law, also known as NimLawDraws, created wonderful images of Jessica Bumpus from Vogue, Fiona of Save Our Shoes, photographer Liz Johnson-Artur, Michelle Urvall Nyren, 6 Day Riot, and Amelia's Mag fashion editors Jonno Ovans, Matt Bramford and Sally Mumby-Croft. All from images taken at the ACOFI launch.

Jessica Bumpus of Vogue gets the Naomi Law treatment. Here’s her blog in case you missed it previously.

Naomi Law has taken a rather circuitous route towards the land of fashion illustration. She left her graphics degree somewhat disillusioned, view came to London and quickly landed a job in e-commerce – it was only when our erstwhile fashion editor Matt Bramford prompted her to start drawing again that her love of fashion illustration was reawakened. Since then she’s been scribbling away furiously on her wacom tablet – churning out the most amazing illustrations from a beautiful fusion of watery digital layers.

Fiona O’Grady of Save Our Shoes wrote a lovely blog about how much ACOFI had inspired her.

Our official afternoon photographer Liz Johnson-Artur strikes a typical pose in her fabulous leggings – CHECK DEM! Much admired, but Liz was keeping their provenance firmly under wraps goddamit.

Returning the favour she drew fellow illustrator Michelle Urvall Nyren, eyes downward as if fixed on her sketchpad.

Tamara of 6 Day Riot captured her imagination in this image.

She also created this wonderful image from a photograph of my three former and current fashion editors – Jonno Ovans now works with the Ethical Fashion Forum, Matt is obviously still here, and Sally Mumby-Croft has never really left. As well as being a super talented film-maker she also regularly contributes to both the art and fashion sections. Matt and Sally were of course completely indispensable on the day of the ACOFI launch.
