Rashad Al-Karooni is an artist and Architect, based in North London where he runs his Architecture and Design Studio. His drawing style merges an abstract figurative approach with architectural, geometric and bold forms, predominantly using compressed charcoal as a way to express his vision. His influences range from futurism to sculpture, with his own artistic language acting as an extension of all that he has learnt while regularly attending life drawing sessions across London.

Mon, 26 Sept 2022 – Tue, 4 Oct 2022


It was such an honour to work with SHOWstudio and illustrate the designs, moods, textures and compositions which resonated with me at Paris Fashion Week S/S 2023.

SHOWstudio is an online platform and fashion website which pushes the boundaries of communicating fashion online.

Each drawing becomes a conceptual representation capturing moments and feelings from the catwalk this week.
