[G]ill Button is a UK-based illustrator, who you might know as @buttonfruit from Instagram. Gill has a very unique and distinctive style, illustrating in a playful and painterly hand that makes high fashion feel real and accessible. Working mostly with oil paint, you can see the beauty in the brushstroke in Gill’s work, the texture, the movement and the emotion. This refreshing, contemporary approach has allowed her to work with clients such as Gucci and Dries Van Noten.
Ahead of the Fashion Illustration Gallery’s upcoming Art Fair, we had a chance to talk to Gill about finding inspiration in London, and the sensuality of painting.
