A couple of weeks ago I had one of the most glamorous and beautiful live illustration sessions. I have been invited to perform live over Aldo ‘Reign or Shine’ FW17 press day in heart of central London.
It was an exclusive session for stylists, bloggers and influencers, as well as the brand itself to capture some gorgeous dreamy shoes from the collection.
The best part for me as live illustrator is the opportunity to engage with people and direct contact with the model. Some people laugh how chatty I am over my live illustration sessions, but to me this is as important as every stroke I do on the paper – as it is directly affected by the nature of the person, their style, their voice… And how inspiring it is for me, when I have a chance to directly engage with some of the key influencers and get to know them in such unique way!
Whenever I had a chance, I drew the shoes from the upcoming collection. The FW17 is truly lush – pink pastels and grey tones are truly romantic and feminine. Fluffy furry accessories will make you want to snuggle all winter long. However, there were a couple of really bold embroidered pieces that made sure the collection isn’t monotone. I especially will look out for the silver and shiny long boots!
One of the highlights for me as an artist was to draw a couple of significant bloggers and VIPs over the event. Without a doubt beautiful DJ Zara Martin was one of them!
Another lovely lady who was waiting in line to get her portrait done was blogger Freddy – I tried to depict her sweet nature!
Finally the third of my favourite bloggers I drew was Mona’s Eyes – she is incredibly smart, kind and was very happy to receive a lot of applause from her 🙂
Thank you Aldo and BPCM PR for a beautiful day!
