At only 22 years old fashion illustrator and budding designer Hayden Williams has already began to make a name for himself. The London based designer has had his work praised by the likes of Beyonce, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and Oprah (who had her portrait framed). He’s been published in Elle and Vogue Magazine. How does a young male get started and gain such notoriety so quickly in such a cut throat industry?
”I started drawing at the age of 3 and it hasn’t really stopped since. I would sit and obsessively draw female Disney characters after watching the movies until they were as close as possible to being perfect! Those years of drawing the female form, (however unrealistic) basically led into me then going on to study fashion design at Barking college and then Ravensbourne University. Before i studied, i realised what i was doing as a child could translate into fashion illustration and design. As the years went on, my sketches naturally progressed and became a lot more polished and mature. I’m proud to say that i am self taught in regards to my illustration work.”
