Although you may not be into fashion itself, fashion-inspired illustrations can often bring new insight into colour innovation, techniques and execution.

Sunny Gu (opens in new tab) is a Los Angeles-based fashion and beauty illustrator who has been commissioned by the likes of Vogue magazine, Versace and HBO. Inspired by summer and the fashion accessories that come along with it, she created a four-part summery series that we can't get enough of.
