I love when I discover amazing talent in the fashion world. It’s implausible to think that I didn’t know about this sooner. I’m referring to the fascinating and fun illustrations of a young artist from Melbourne Australia. Though I have not yet had a chance to visit this cultural city, what I can tell you about it is that it has been mentioned as one of the world’s most livable places. Why? First of all the back alleys are a safe place to hang out if you didn't know this already and in some places, you receive free beer while you’re waiting for a haircut and you're always surrounded by amazing, often whimsical street art. Sounds like a great place to be for a creative person like Mads Francis, a 21 year old illustrator who lives just outside of the Central Business District by the bay. It was during her travels to Europe and the US back in 2012 which gave her inspiration for her work. She loves art and literally draws seven days a week. Not much time is spent for friends as she is focused on her goals. Celebrities have started to notice Mads work on social media which is rapidly growing her fan base. She’s reached a network of over 17000 followers on Instagram within a few months and it continues to increase. Followers like Rihanna, Melissa Forde, Tyra Banks, The Kardashian Collection, Miss J. Alexander, and Australian model Megan Gale to name a few. Mads has been featured in a number of publications and I have no doubt this is only the beginning. I wish her well in her endeavors!
