Artist Brooke Hagel

As you can see, Material Girls recently got a fabulous new blog header- all thanks to the incredibly talented artist, Brooke Hagel. Brooke was such a joy to work with and we had a great time coming up with ideas for our "Marie Antoinette" inspired illustration. I was so pleased with the outcome and couldn't wait to tell everyone else about Brooke and show some of the other outstanding illustrations she has done!

But first, a little background on her: She's been an artist ever since she could pick up a pencil! Brooke graduated from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology where she majored in fashion design, although her main focus throughout school was wardrobe and costume design. She also attained internships with Cynthia Rowley, Sex and the City, and Saturday Night Live. Since graduating (in June 2003) she has worked as a wardrobe supervisor for off-Broadway, as a Freelance Photo Stylist and Illustrator, and a Product Designer. She currently lives in Manhattan and loves working on her Etsy shop in her spare time! Click on the Etsy link to view and buy some of Brooke's prints!

You can commission Brooke to draw you in your wedding dress-what a wonderful and unique idea for a wedding portrait or a great gift for a bride!

Some of her other fashion illustrations that we love!

Whether it's a big event like a wedding, a birthday, anniversary, or simply just a night out on the town, why not get Brooke to commemorate you in that special dress!
