    .On the 20th September 2016 Burberry launched a Makers House Exhibition, which was opened for a week. The atmosphere and new ready-to-wear A\W 2016 collection inspired me to make a couple of life drawing sketches  with the clothes. However, lots of people did take amazing photoshots with Makers House, especially photographer and graphic designer Jessica Daughters, who agreed on a small collaboration to unite my fashion illustrators and her photos.  Some characters are drawn as random males and females, but most of them are heroes from videogames by Square Enix Company. The most favorite my videogames` characters are from Final Fantasy 6 and Final Fantasy 4, so they were chosen to be my model. Read Less

Launching their latest Show, in September 2016 Burberry opened Makers House space, presenting a huge range of British crafts and displaying the full AW 2016 runaway collection. 
Being inspired by the brand, I was drawing the new season's clothes during a week, developing my life-drawing skill and fashion illustration's style. As the models, mostly I used characters from a world-famous videogame World of Final Fantasy by Square Enix, especially from a separate Final Fantasy 6 game. So, mixing fashion and videogames I wanted to create something fresh and unusual for fashion illustration's genre. The reasons, why this decision was made, are my personal big passions about new technologies and clothes design and my wish to experiment and draw something, what I have never done before. ​​​​​​​
     
Six months later Burberry reopened the Makers House in February 2017. Using this opportunity again, I decided to repeat my life-drawing experience of fashion illustration. Changing my drawing style, during the latest exhibition I focused on details, feelings and quality, rather than speed, drawing materials and experiments.

The only one illustration, which is not drawn in Makers House. Being inspired after watching the Burberry Show online, I started to sketch and express my personal feelings and vision on the new collection and its style.

The September's illustrations were drawn in my pocket A5-size sketchbook. With the life-drawing as a goal, I also wanted to improve my drawing speed. As a result, I`ve done 10 fashion illustrations and sketches using a different range of materials, such as pens, markers and watercolours, with varying styles and techniques. 
Through the Instagram platform, suddenly I found beautiful photos from the exhibition by Jessica Daughters. After messaging her, I received a green light to create simple collages about Makers House Burberry.
In addition, some Vogue's photoshoots from the Burberry catwalk were used in my collages in order to present original models' looks.
During the February Makers House, I met Christopher Bailey, the current chief executive and creative director of Burberry, and gifted him my pocket sketchbook with the sketches as I wanted to express him & his team my personal thanks for the Makers House experience and inspiration.
