With her signature playing card series, Connie Lim and her girls have become the darling of the fashion illustration world
Los Angeles-based illustrator and fashion designer Connie Lim has created a gothic high fashion fantasy world of manga-eyed waif muses with a talent for seductive, just don’t give a fuck glamour. Stung by a love of drawing since a young age, Connie Lim crossed the pond to England after art school to study at Central St. Martins, where she earned a degree in Fashion Design and Marketing. In recent years, fashion illustration has gone from being a component of design to a creative field entirely on its own. Connie’s Creative DNA perfectly intertwines these two worlds.
