live portraits

4 full days live drawing at Ralph Lauren's Polo flagship store on Regent Street

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. 

At the beginning of May, Armani took Jacqueline to Birmingham for another innovative, interactive event

Another City, another Emporio Armani event for Jacqueline. Linking up her iPad Pro to a 2 metre high screen, this customer evening event was a huge hit with customers and local bloggers. Jacqueline felt really at home as this is the city near where she grew up and went to Bournville College of Art, embarking on her fashion career. Little did she know 30+ years ago that she would end up working for such luxury brands as Giorgio Armani. The fabulous designer shopping centre  The Mailbox is a great place for shopping and eating, hosting this wonderful champagne and canapéd event.

Fashion portraits at a beautiful afternoon tea at The Bvlgari Hotel, Knightsbridge

Spent yesterday afternoon with a bunch of very hip, stylish fashion & lifestyle bloggers in The Spirit Room of The Bvlgari Hotel- a super stylish hang out for Knightsbridge locals and visitors alike. Below are some of the sketches that I did as quick 12-15 minutes of the ladies who were all model like in appearance- made my job very easy!!!
