I travel the world and illustrate my experiences through a fashion-art lens, creating custom content for various clients. Whether it’s fashion week in Moscow for MBFWRussia, or a quick jaunt to Bermuda for Condé Nast Traveler, I translate what I see into inspired illustrations to be shared with the world.

My Power Outfit: Fashion Illustrator Meagan Morrison

Why does it make you feel powerful?

As a fashion illustrator I’m constantly studying outfits from head to toe; how little accents show so much character and personality. Looser layers and distressed clothing can convey a laissez faire attitude, whereas well tailored clothing can show a sense of confidence and self-awareness. I personally feel most confident guest lecturing in this outfit because it’s well-fitted to my body, the silhouette is balanced, and shows a bit of my playful side with the dip-dyed fox fur scarf. I also wear the Henri Bendel ring every single day. It was the first purchase I made working as an illustrator, so it holds a lot of significance for me about living in my passion and following my truth.

Any advice for dressing for a variety of clients as a freelancer?

I think the expression “know your audience” is really relevant when it comes to presenting yourself to various clients. You always want to dress true to you, but also be aware of who you’re speaking with, and what you’re communicating through what you’re wearing. I want to be perceived as professional, someone who has a strong sense of self, but also someone who’s relatable and grounded. For that reason I often opt for a really nice pair of designer flats or leather boots when I meet a client for the first time. I’m an artist and very hands on. Also, always have your nails done! It shows that you care about the details and really finishes a look.

“know your audience”. Yes. Well, you will be offending a large percent of your audience if you wear fur. Faux fur would be a better choice. My hackles are raised.

Oh, for goodness' sake. Surely you know that fashion deals largely with natural fabrics and materials, many of which are sourced from animals. Whether you support the fur industry or not, recognize that there IS an audience for that. A rather large one.

Saw the instagram post and had to check this out. Her last comment, about always having your nails done, is one I am attempting to incorporate into my professional life. I am constantly setting a goal to take better care of my nails. It is the one part of my style/look that I do not feel accurately represents me. My nails are almost never polished and I am always picking at them.

Here is a public declaration to my levo sisters - I will polish and paint my nails today and start using them as a representation of myself - attitude, style, and choices. Thanks for the inspiration Meagan!

Here it goes...

I agree with Anonymous. If the animal isn't going to be used entirely, it shouldn't be killed for its skin. Also, faux fur production has come a long way and in many cases looks as good as the original.
