I just found your tumblr and your sketches are gorgeous. Also you have a lot of followers and yet you still take the time to answer lots of messages even though you probably have hundreds. I think thats lovely. I look forward to seeing more of your work :)
Aw thank you! Yes, i try to answer as many questions as i can. I always appreciate when people show my work love or want some advice in regards to illustration/design.
Hi Hayden!!! I'm crazily in love with you and your fashion illustration. By the way, if someday you'll have your own label, what will the name? Thanks so much and do not forget you are such a brilliant gift on earth. :D
Thank you very much! When i have my own ‘high end’ label, it will be called Hayden Williams.
In order to be a fashion designer, do you have to be able to draw? I know I can't draw, but I've always wanted to be a designer. :)
Not necessarily, but it definitely helps to translate your ideas better when you can! Everyone has their strengths, things they aren’t so confident in and own individual way of creating. Do what works for you!
You say since you were 3 you've been drawing.. What inspired you to illustrate fashion?
Fashion was always there subconsciously since i was a child. The things i was attracted to and inspired to draw always had a ‘fashion’ or ‘womenswear’ element for e.g Disney female characters. When i hit my teens, that is when i became more conscious of it & my work started to mature. I started to realise that my work could translate to fashion and design, so i ran with it!
I have dreamt of being a fashion designer ever since i was tiny, how do i get started? Im so lost! LOVE your work by the way keep it up xxx
Build up a portfolio of work! Let inspiration come to you naturally and find a way to creatively channel it. Also, look into college or University if you plan on studying design and go from there.
Hi! I love your designs. I want to be a fashion designer but i am to young to go to a school for this job and i really want to start now. How can i start ? and Do you speak french ?
I would say to just sketch and design….build up your portfolio by consistently creating, then you will have lots to show when it comes to interviews for college etc. I don’t speak french sadly haha!
