Welcome to my website. My name is Anna Schwarzer and I’m a fashion and beauty illustrator based in Frankfurt, Germany.
My love story with fashion illustration started when I was just a little girl: I was always drawing, mostly women and girls with beautiful outfits – clothes that I hoped to wear one day – and often I flipped though fashion catalogues. In school I fell in love with watercolors and at some point, soon after graduation, I decided to become a fashion designer.
After a fascinating internship at the Mannheim National Theatre costumes department I was lucky enough to get a spot at the University of Applied Sciences of Trier (FH Trier) to study fashion design.
During my studies I began to struggle a bit, as I’ve realized that my true passion was in drawing rather than in designing clothes. The drawing lessons were by far my favorite class and I loved drawing women in amazing fashion gowns. Time flew by as I used my inks and brushes to illustrate quick fashion sketches on large papers. Finally, by the time I finished my fashion design diploma I made the decision that at some point in my life I would become an illustrator.
But first I've worked as a fashion design intern, followed by a few years as an art director (first for an agency and later as a freelancer). Finally I followed my calling and started to focus on illustration rather than graphic design. So far I’ve created illustrations for packagings, print media, magazines, invitations, events and so much more.
I've worked with amazing clients such as Dior, Gucci, Tiffany, Givenchy, LVMH, Prada, Miu Miu, Bucherer, Piaget, Vacheron Constantin, Hugo Boys, Coty, L`Occitane, Jo Malone London, Samsung and many more.
