Tara's fashion tarots

I'm a longtime admirer of Tara Dougan's works and I bet 
her name sounds familiar to your ears or, better, her own 
drawing style has probably met your fancy while browsing 
the net or through the pages of a high-end fashion magazine.

Tara is a young yet consummate Canadian illustrator currently
based in London whose work is focused on detail oriented
design in which amazing androgynous characters wear
state-of-the-art designers garments.

Lavish illustrations, mostly made on paper in pencil and gouache,
where fashion meets fantasy with inscrutable faces blurring
the limit of masculinity and femininity embedded into 
couture outfits and depicted like tarot cards figures.

Tara's latest series of illustrations, smartly called “Boys will 
be boys (then men will be...)” is a six piece editorial 
inspired by menswear winter collections she came to 
publish on her “Labour of Love” cool website.

Love her posh style and her good humor.
