Vietnam-based fashion illustrator Eris Tran designs classically gorgeous gowns with a contemporary twist. Skillfully sketched and artistically conceived, the striking collection of illustrations showcases Tran’s avant-garde approach to traditional dress design.
Composed of a rich and diverse color palette, realistically-rendered textures, and lots of layers, each of Tran’s multi-dimensional drawings and paintings exhibit his ability to conceptualize his imaginative ideas. Foregoing a narrow approach to color for an all-inclusive rainbow range, Tran explores and experiments with pigments. He also employs a range of materials, including crushed velvet, exquisite feathers, and delicate lace, in his practice. Additionally, most of the his dresses are floor-length—though some have high-low hemlines and leggy slits—and feature stunning silhouettes ready for a runway.
Tran cites a range of influences in his practice, from musician he’s particularly partial to (Lana Del Rey appears to be an enduring muse) to seasonal styles, like bright colors for summer and floral patterns evocative of spring. He also draws inspiration from contemporary haute couture, while, of course, retaining his original approach and artistic flair. You can find all of his striking fashion illustrations on his Instagram page, where he regularly updates his pretty portfolio.
