Jacqueline illustrates at FOUR Louis Vuitton Pre Xmas Cocktail events

It's been my busiest time with live events illustrating so I'm rather behind with my blogs I'm afraid! Please bear with me while I try to get you up to date with recent commissions!

I've worked at 4 events for Louis Vuitton over the Xmas period. The first was at their beautifully luxurious New Bond Street flagship store. The store is amazing and in the personal shopping areas they had some amazing art works including an original Gilbert & George and a Yayoi Kusama. I sat and drew customers trying on the new Cruise 18 collection- totally beautiful pieces!

The next event was in Selfridges for the Masters collection, a collaboration with Jeff Koons showing some of the old masters' on bags and scarves etc. I prepared a few pieces before hand to show customers and they could choose similar poses or  straight fashion portraits.

Event no.3 was in Birmingham's Selfridges - a lovely cocktail evening for special guests to celebrate the glitzy new boutique in the Bullring Shopping Centre. I met some wonderful guests who made me feel so welcome, felt a bit like a homecoming as I'm from The West Midlands originally!

The fourth and final event was in Westfield in the second week of December, with another exclusive cocktail evening for special customers, all in all it's been an amazing experience working in beautifully luxurious boutiques and with some lovely people.

Spring Summer 2017 collections of Balenciaga, Prada, Chloe, Armani, Miu Mui and Bottega Veneta

Self directed seasonal 'sketchbook' working from the latest collections from luxury brands and top fashion houses. Loose watercolour inks splashed around the page to portray the new candy bright colours of Spring/ Summer 2017. Featuring Balenciaga's fabulous Spandex trouser/boot combo with more than a nod to  1970's disco. There are a lot of early '80's influences around at the moment in both colour and styling.
