Fashion Icon Illustrations by Joana Avillez

Joana Avillez collaborated with Refinery 29 to illustrate the most iconic and influential fashion personalities. We think Joana illustrated each fashion icon to a T and we are obsessed with all the little side notes for each fashion personality -Anna Dello Russo has two apartments, one for herself and one for her clothes…. Now that’s what I need to do with all my shoes or maybe get a warehouse like Iris Apfel!
