Shelby Oliver is a fashion illustrator currently residing in Melbourne, Australia. She studied fashion drawing at Fashion Masters (formerly Melbourne School of Fashion.)
Shelby is a strictly analogue artist, her favourite mediums being watercolour, a Tombow Mono 100 F grade pencil, and a deliciously large sheet of cotton rag cold press paper. She’s also studied architecture and journalism - so she can string a sentence together and knows a thing or two about design. Shelby has taken numerous classes with the fabulous Angie Réhe at The Drawing Salon, and undertook a life-changing masterclass with Bil Donovan as part of L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Week in 2013.
Favourite designers? Cristobel Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Haider Ackermann, Jeanne Lanvin, Madame Grés, Madeleine Vionnet, and Pier Paolo Piccioli for Valentino.
