Sylvia Cohen is a Montreal based Fashion Designer and Illustrator, who combines a love of painting and fashion to give life to her images. Her work has evolved from a 15 years in Women's design while devoting her time between fashion design, illustration and painting.
Excavating imagery from an array of sources, she continually draws from fashion photography as well as current culture and trend. Scanning photos and manipulating them to focus on specific details is the beginning of her process. She loves to play with light, color and orientation, where the negative space becomes just as intriguing. Her illustrations draw on the symbiotic relationship between fashion and the mundane, where excess becomes fashionable and fashion excessive.
