I had a great time over the Royal Wedding weekend, working on the first floor of the beautiful Regency building. Staff were very welcoming and it was great to work in a place with a lovely 'family feeling'! The glitzy opening evening was attended by the fashion glitterati who came to listen to Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey who gave a fabulous talk on the styling of Ralph's new collection. The following 3 days I spent linked up to a large monitor where guests were invited to try on the new collection, styled by the staff. I then sketched them on my iPad Pro, emailing the illustrations directly to them.
The launch of Malée's new soy candles in Harvey Nichols coincided with Mother's Day so I had a busy 2 days illustrating portraits on tote bags in the Beauty Lounge on the ground floor.
I've been enjoying a fabulous collaboration with Malée whose natural beauty products are divine! With ingredients and inspiration from Africa, the products are gorgeous- my favourites are the Conditioning Body Scrub in Verdure which makes your skin SO soft, finish with their gorgeous moisturising oil. These are great products with a wonderfully resfreshing scent and not too feminine so even my husband approves!
Last month we worked on a little 'film' for the illustration work that I did for the packaging. The brief was to be inspired by Malée Masquerade photographs to create something lively and be able to reproduce in different colour ways for the 3 scents.
