Over time, her work will be a phenomenal record of the documentation, history, and evolution of fashion.

— Georg Petschnigg, founder of FiftyThree


My name is Danielle Meder, and I am a fashion artist, writer, and Tarot reader. As an illustrator, I spent ten years sketching live at fashion shows, creating complex layered paper dolls, and helping fashion designers communicate their ideas. I am a regular contributor to the Style section of Canada’s national newspaper The Globe and Mail. My first book, Draw Fashion Now, is published by Quarto.

I am available for fashion illustration commissions, writing and consulting work. As I have a unique ability to perform fashion illustration while talking, I’m also keen on speaking and teaching.

The subject of my writing has been the ephemeral patterns of fashion, beauty and fame, however recently I’ve been inspired to explore more universal themes.

I am fortunate to live a location independent life, and I divide most of my time among my four favourite cities: Toronto, New York, London and Paris.

Heartfelt thanks for visiting, and please feel free to get in touch.
