Laura Callaghan is an Irish illustrator who creates very cool and colorful works that trace the history of street style. Discover more now!

Laura Callaghan is an Irish illustrator who tells women through stories made of colors, atmospheres, and fashion. All her tables present an obsessive search for color combinations, the physiognomy of each female character and the most appropriate styling based on the background-context.

Her careful look retraces various phases of street style with a preference for the 80s and 90s; this is paradoxical considering that initially, the artist was afraid to use too much color, while now it has become the key element of her compositions that are specially designed to enhance bright tones. As the artist says:

“Sometimes you need to put together the ugliest color combinations to see what works”.

The experimentation of unusual combinations makes Laura’s creations even more interesting and transforms them into the story of style and femininity. Even when her characters are found in homes or places that do not refer to the street world, they always manage to result from the underground and metropolitan mood.
