Anjelica Roselyn Dariah’s illustrations are very much grounded in her background in fashion. Born and raised in London, Dariah studied at London College of Fashion with a BA in Fashion Design Technology, specializing in womenswear. It was during that time that she interned at Marc Jacobs and Ryan Lo.
Now a full-time fashion illustrator, her loose and funky characters, often based on runway looks, prove to be the embodiment of fashion. With her illustrations featured monthly on the VOGUE Greece‘s horoscope columns, as well as collaborations with giants like Pat McGrath, Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott, and Anna Sui, there’s no shortage of work for Dariah (and there’s also no shortage of clout).
“I don’t think I know the magic key to attract a client,” Dariah remarked in an interview with Freelance Wisdom. “However, I believe clients will always hire you because there is something unique about you. If they can hire someone else for doing the exact same thing, then they will. You have to naturally stand out.”
Aside from her editorial work, Dariah is also commissioned to do live illustrations. “I love live illustrating because you don’t have to overthink what you’re drawing – it’s very in the moment,” she says. “Also it’s great to see people’s instant reactions while you’re drawing, and when you finish drawing. Plus it’s great to draw in different environments. I think it’s a great way to make you a well rounded/well experienced illustrator.”
