The Clothes Whisperer – “Sketchtastic”

Date: October 25th, 2009
Title: Sketchtastic (As seen on our Fashion Editor’s, Kristen Knox’s blog- The Clothes Whisperer)


If Vogue’s November “More Dash than Cash” issue has left your monthly hunkering for fashion editorial somewhat less than satisfied (I do concede, the DIY shoots of rubber gloves and trash bags was fantastic, but the further glorification of “Dash Cash Pin-Ups” including Agy, Alexa and the Geldof girls was hardly inspirational), enter Sketchbook Magazine, a new independent quarterly, to the rescue.The brainchild of my dear and wildly multi-talented friend, Wafa Al Obaidat,
Sketchbook is a new quarterly magazine that showcases established and emerging creative talents in fashion, design and culture featuring original sketchbook graphics. The juxtaposition of beautiful and quirky illustrations against photography within the features (exclusive interviews, etc), is a truly fresh approach to editorial and brings a touch of the personal back to an increasingly digitally impersonal industry.The first issue, The Fashion Blogger Issue: “I Blog Therefore I Am,” features the reigining queen of London bloggers, Susie Lau of Style Bubble on the cover as well as interviews with shady lady Diane Pernet and Perez Hilton. So go check it out, either online or print to order…it’s sketchtastic!

Oh, and I did I mention that yours truly is a Fashion Editor? So be sure to look for my features on my time at Vogue, the LCF BA show and Alice Instone’s shoe exhibit!
