Yiying Lu Illustrates Fashion Notables for ‘10 Most Intriguing in Fashion’ Feature

July 20, 2011 – Washington, D.C. Fashion icons Anna Wintour, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and other fashion notables will be illustrated by Yiying Lu, the creator of Twitter’s pop-culture iconic “Fail Whale” and Conan O’Brien’s re-mixed “Pale Whale” for the inaugural Autumn/Winter 2011 issue of Meets Obsession Magazine.

Lu’s illustrations will be featured exclusively in Meets Obsession’s “10 Most Intriguing in Fashion” feature story, which will profile ten notable names in fashion who have made the industry’s most intriguing headlines this year.

Lu has designed the illustrations for Meets Obsession magazine, incorporating a matrix bar code, a.k.a Quick Response (QR) code, which can be scanned to reveal a website address where readers may download free digital versions of Lu’s artwork to their desktops, iPhones, and iPads.

“Lu is incredibly talented and we’re excited to have worked with her,” Jacqy Law, Publisher and Editor-In-Chief for Meets Obsession magazine said. “At Meets Obsession, we’re always thinking of unique and cutting-edge ways to present fashion to our readers. The illustrations will add a unique element to our inaugural issue and will allow us to interact with our readers in an innovative way.”
