“Don’t do research on Instagram only” says Fortuna Todisco, the fashion designer turned illustrator

Fortuna Todisco graduated in Fashion Design at IED Milano in 2010 but after some years working as a designer, she decided to focus on the world of visual arts, starting a career as an illustrator. She collaborate with prestigious internationally renowned magazines, companies and newspapers: The Sun, VICE US, Cosmopolitan DE, Benetton, Figurella, Panorama, Wired UK and Vanity Fair.
