Illustrating is mostly gaining inspiration in advance and researching from everywhere. Based on patterns and fabric qualities you can give the right interpretation.
Use of color according to the latest trends.

Fashion changed completely in the 1950s.
The fashion history was mainly influenced
by Christian Dior. He introduced a completely
new business model in the fashion world.
The sketching of the silhouettes was done
by Dior himself, but commercial designers of
the fashion magazines worked with well-
known illustrators like René Bouché and
René Gruau, who knew how to create the right
lines with flair and with an attractive sense
of color. Vogue gratefully used this. It is certain
that the work of Linda Zoon can be compared
with this. She knows how to place her lines with
the same elegance. She sets up a sketch design
with smooth strokes.
Much faster than many a photographer can achieve
a result, the illustrative work is much easier and gives more possibilities to adjust it.
Nostalgic, timeless, but illustrative entirely of today.
Ideal if you are looking for fashion images for theatres, exhibitons or museums. Linda knows historical fashion
styles, but colorful and atmosphere to make it attractive.
Commissioned by the well-known Dutch fashion designer Addy van den Krommenacker, Linda produced several separate elements in the theme
'Out of Africa'. With these elements, Addy was able to create compositions and printed on fabrics for different creations. He used this on the Ready-to-wear collection, but also for Haute Couture.
Unlike other years, Van den Krommenacker chose not to come directly with a complete collection around the theme 'Out of Africa' but to surprise the public with new items in the coming period. One of the other items contains a new print, for which he collaborated with fashion illustrator Linda Zoon.
Addy: 'That was a nice, special collaboration. I knew Linda from her beautiful illustrations, in which the femininity of the creations perfectly comes into their own.
I have asked her to do it the other way around, so her illustration complements my design. It has been a great success for me! '
Linda Zoon has brainstormed with Addy about compositions and fabrics.
Linda: 'That was a lot of fun, exchanging ideas with each other with this collection finally as a result. I'm very happy with it. For me, fashion is an art form.
And how great is it that illustration and fashion as two art forms reinforce each other with this collection as the result
