You’ve definitely (maybe? probably?) seen the oh-so-snatched fashion sketches of illustrator Hayden Williams, but you might not already be following the man behind the glam. Re-imagining all the sumptuousness of a high-fashion photo editorial, Williams’ illustrations are pure fantasy starring some of the most iconic black artists of the last few decades, like Grace Jones, Janet Jackson, and Aaliyah to new classics like Solange. He’s also high-key campaigning to design Megan Markle’s wedding dress with a mini-collection inspired by her upcoming nuptials to Prince Harry and, frankly, she’d be lucky to have one!
