Keep reading to learn more about Rebecca and her passion for the fashion industry. You’ll find that she is a quick study and has taken her career into her own hands.
When asked what inspired her to turn this interest into a career, Rebecca says “The spark was instant when I came across a Miley Cyrus film called ‘Tied Tongue’ by Quentin Jones. It literally left me without words. It blew my mind away. I started to search about her and I totally fell in love with her works. I remember looking at her work and thinking: I want to do this in my life.”
She has other inspirations too, wondering who her favorites are? Rebecca has stated the following; “I totally love A.F. Vandevorst with those dark and quirky vibes that match exactly with my aesthetic. Then I’d say Raf Simons with his sketchy and hand-drawn elements, and Yves Saint Laurent for the ad campaigns.”
Though she has studied work that is inspiring to her, Rebecca lets her illustrations come from a place of freedom. She does her best to not contain herself and stick to a routine. Her visions have enabled her to work with brands such as Sisley Italy and hopes to expand into projects with more brand in the future.
Rebecca has just started a sole proprietorship and signed with Things By People. She is looking forward to continuing to work with other artists she admires and bring her own ideas to light. Keep your eyes out for Rebecca on Smash Urban Media and check her out on Instagram and Facebook.
