For a recentย X Questions With post we spoke with Italian fashion designer and Lamperti Milano founder Erika Lamperti. It was so inspiring to get a peek inside her fashion sketchbooks and see how the design translates from the page into a magnificent real-life piece of footwear.

Browsing Instagram we found many more examples of talented designers and fashion-loving illustrators who are happily sharing their sketches online. It was hard to choose our favourites, but these fourteen artists are definitely worth checking out!
