SLOW FASHION WITH LIMITED QUANTITIES - THAT YOU CAN TREASURE BEYOND TRENDS
Sam K Ryan is an Australian illustrator and sleepwear designer.
She has been in an impassioned relationship with drawing ever since she can remember. Since the beginnings of a frilly-sock-wearing childhood in country Victoria, she was already very fond of scribbling away.
Sam has been significantly influenced by film and television, most especially by those of the classic Hollywood era and films based within a period setting. It was most definitely the elegance, elaborately embellished fashion and overall design aesthetic of these styles in cinema that summoned her love for all that has a touch of vintage as well as projects a quirky essence.
Whether Sam may be exploring fashion-focused illustrations or ones that have more of a lucid narrative, she tends to interweave pops of colour and/or floral motifs in some form throughout her work.
Having always desired to venture into the fashion industry, she explores textile design so to merge both of her major interests together. Now, Sam presents sleepwear designs as a loving extension of her illustrations interwoven with fashion.
