This week, we’re excited to feature one of our friends, and talented fashion illustrator, Meagan Morrison. Raised in Toronto and now based out of New York, Meagan is quickly becoming well known among fashion savvy circles for her gorgeous, eye-popping, colorful sketches. From fun accessories, to beautiful landscapes and well-dressed models, each piece is captivating; truly a unique work of art. It’s no mystery as to why she’s a force to be reckoned with on social media and has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion including Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, DVF, Rebecca Minkoff, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
After receiving her Fashion Illustration AAS from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Meagan started her blog, Travel Write Draw. On TWD, she documents her adventures across the globe and in New York with illustrations created through a “fashion-art lens, ” as she would call it. So, whether she’s traveling to a crystal blue beach in St. Barth or roaming around Copenhagen during Fashion Week, take part in her adventures.
And, since we love Meagan so much, we thought it’d be fun to find out more about this super talented cool girl. We’ve asked her to spill the beans on her favorite drugstore must-haves, guilty pleasures and future travel plans. You won’t believe what she recently splurged on…
