Richard Haines

Richard Haines refers to New York City as an endless runway. The place is a wonderful inspiration for a man who moved to the Big Apple to pursue illustration, who then became a successful fashion designer before returning to where he started as one of today’s most sought after fashion illustrators.

His works regularly grace the pages of InStyle Magazine and his hugely successful website, which features both his personal and professional work, has received accolades from amongst others Paper Magazine, New York Magazine and GQ. It is not uncommon to see Haines seated front row busily drawing from life and capturing the moment in pencil and pastel on paper before posting it on his blog.

Haines’ current popularity can be traced to his successful career as a designer for J Crew, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Sean Combs and Bill Blass. The experience garnered at each of these fashion companies complemented and nurtured his formal training as an illustrator, helped train his eye and informs a refreshingly direct approach to figurative drawing and image making.
