WHO IS DEAR GIANA, AKA @ G.VON.G, THE YOUNG ILLUSTRATOR WHO HAS ENCHANTED THE WORLD OF FASHION AND SOCIAL NETWORKS?
Giana is an American artist of Filipino-Mexican origins, whose illustrations have become viral in a very short time thanks to her Instagram @g.von.g profile that counts 16.1 thousand followers. What makes it special? She is only 8 years old, a sweet face, a frivolous fringe and a personality that makes every drawing unmistakable.
Her passion for illustrations and watercolours was discovered by chance by parents. Already at 5 years old was a child prodigy of the design, with a well-defined style. She chooses an image that captures his attention and tears out two. One half remains an image representation of the real, the other half is its creation.
An accurate process that takes a few days to be perfect, as Giana reveals in an interview with Vogue USA. She understands that he has finished when, looking at her drawing, she is happy. In her, there is the innocence of a child and the trait of a professional: pure passion, which has not gone unnoticed by anyone in the fashion industry.
Her first personal exhibition took place in November 2016 in Seattle, where more than 40 of his illustrations were exhibited. For the New York Fashion Week 2018 she was asked to choose three of the most significant looks and to create her vision. Her choices fell on Mark Jacobs, Calvin Klein and Alexander Wang and the result were magnificent. Since then it has been a crescendo of collaborations with fashion brands and not only, last with Nike and Highsnobiety.
Recently she was nominated in the VogueWorld 100 List, among the most interesting and inspiring personalities of the moment.
Who knows what the future of this baby artist and influencer will be like? Is she a rising star ? We can not make predictions but we can not deny the talent of this child and wait to follow her growth.
