Painting Imperfect Flowers Perfectly with KT Smail

This story is part of our new series #FashionIllustrated, stories of artists from around the world who are using their imaginations to bring style to life. To see more of KT’s work, follow @ktsmail on Instagram.

“Flowers are never perfect,” says KT Smail (@ktsmail), whose fashion illustrations often feature vivid blooms. “The key to a great floral is not making it too perfect or symmetrical.” Whether KT’s florals fill a whole page or appear as a backdrop for prints on a @gucci or @erdemlondon gown, her advice is the same: “Always start with colors that are complementary, or at least colors that clash in a good way.” KT, who lives in Brooklyn, admits that sharing work in progress can be scary. “I think that remaining vulnerable and open is important for an artist — and a human — so I force myself.”
