This app ditches the filter for human illustrator skills

Even after the dress is made, many fashion designers return to sketches to bring back the magic of the original idea. Chic Sketch 2.0 turns your photos into high quality sketches worth space on a glossy.

Unlike other photo-editing apps that use algorithms to turn images into a sort of digital etch, the app enlists human illustrators working in a studio. The sketches are done in a quick fashion illustration style which includes all of your get-up’s most important details yet still leaving some details to the imagination.

Each sketch costs $9.99.  Because one original piece of artwork is done with every order, Chic Sketch guarantees that no two sketches will ever be alike.

During February’s New York Fashion Week, the app partnered with several labels to create a sort of live coverage of the fashion through sketches. Chic Sketch co-founder and lead fashion illustrator Emily Brickel Edelson was backstage at many of the shows including Marchesa, Herve Leger and Jeremy Scott, sketching away and broadcasting results to the Chic Sketch app users. Aside from making sketches, the app is also it’s own social network.

Users can upload their sketch, tag the designers they wear and events they are attending. This makes it easy for other users to scour uploads for inspiration. The lead page features trends and live-sketched programs such as award shows. The roster of clients of Chic Sketch show the fashion world is interested in what it can bring to fashionistas worldwide: Cartier, Saks Fifth Avenue and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
