"The sweet-faced mademoiselles of illustrator Hayley O’Connor are seemingly hiding a fantastical secret from some far off whimsical world. An array of pencil and sparkling water colours, the Melbourne based artist and graphic designer obviously is as passionate about fashion as she is art. Her works shine with a fashion illustration edge" - Yen Magazine
