This week on Sew & Tell, I’m honored to bring you an interview with the first fashion illustrator we’ve ever featured on the show. Richard Haines is one of the industry’s foremost menswear illustrators, whose popular blog What I Saw Today is a catalogue of his elegant street style sketches and fashion studies. Richard’s career in illustration is a recent transition, one he comes to from thirty years spent designing for some of menswear’s top labels, including Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, and Bill Blass. It’s no wonder that his sketches and drawings convey a strong sense of drape and a firm grasp of garment construction, giving a structural anchor to his passionately expressive renderings of ephemeral moments. On today’s show, Richard talks about the path that took him from illustration into design and back again, how the digital era has impacted the fashion illustration industry, some of the moments that inspire and inform his sketch work, a few recent job highlights, and more. Plus, a great playlist chock full of new music including the latest from Wampire, Allo Darlin’, Greylag and Radiohead drummer Philip Selway. So join us for some fine, fashionable lines here on BTR!
