Emilie Heathe | Creator Series Collaboration
Emilie Heathe are a gorgeous nail polish and lifestyle brand based in New York that I've had the pleasure of collaborating with to create some unique watercolor artworks for, illustrating my take on the brand. By focusing on the brands rich, jewel toned nail polish shade, Big Night Out, I was able to create a series of illustrations encapsulating the brands organic, clean and glamorous qualities with a surrealist twist.
''It is undeniable that Shaina Bains, a UK-based fashion illustrator extraordinaire, creates some gallery-worthy art. Her watercolors are sharp and refined, and her portfolio is extensive, rich with fashion, beauty, and lifestyle inspiration. When we first laid eyes on her work, we knew we had to work together.''
Makeup Museum New York | Pink Jungle - Makeup in 1950's America Exhibition Poster
A very exciting project where I had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with leading fashion and celebrity make-up artist Rachel Goodwin for the launch of The Makeup Museums opening exhibition 'Pink Jungle - 1950's Makeup in America'. Through a bold, painterly, traditional fashion illustration inspired style I was able to bring Rachel's vision to life. Taking inspiration from the strong red lip and obviously made-up yet elegant eyes of the many leading ladies of that era.
