Providing live illustration at the SheerLuxe Fashion Day
In March I was lucky enough to be asked to provide the live illustration for tropical beachwear brand Pampelone at the Sheerluxe Fashion Day in London. This event was a first for online digital fashion magazine SheerLuxe. This amazing event featured a host of bloggers, stylists and industry insiders that were sharing their tips and advice on all things fashion and style orientated. It seemed like a really great day out and if I wasn’t providing the illustrations I would have loved to have attended the event! Throughout the morning there were style seminars held by fashion gurus such as Trinny Woodall and Lorna Luxe. There were complimentary coffee breaks throughout the day with lunch too and even late afternoon drinks provided by Bloom London Dry Gin. Sponsors included ghd, Topshop, Liz Earle and of course Pampelone. As a live illustrator London provides really quality events to be involved in, and this event was no exception.
Live illustrating for Pampelone
Pampelone clothing was founded by former publicist Holly Scarsella. Holly spent many summers at the French Riviera as a child and the chic immaculate style worn by the women from that beautiful area is a key influence in the Pampelone look. We were presenting the latest Pampelone collection in one of the booths at the SheerLuxe Fashion Day. Each customer got to choose their favourite Pampelone dress, which I then illustrated for them. After browsing the rest of the show they were able to pop back and collect their illustration. I’m so lucky to be able to do the job I do and it is such a pleasure to work as a live illustrator at events such as this one. Everyone was so friendly and clearly enjoying the special day laid on for them by SheerLuxe.

Each illustration for Pampelone was done in pen and ink with water colour adding a lovely bright splash of colour. It was so fun to illustrate the resort collection and I loved every piece of the collection. Have a look at the illustrated artworks created and see what you think. All in a days work for a live fashion illustrator!
Would you like to know more about how live illustration can help an event ?
Live illustration can make an event really special and very memorable. It can help get social media really buzzing for a brand or company. I have provided this service for many companies such as Harrods, Selfridges, Wella, Oasis and Juicy Couture. Each illustration takes five to ten minutes and is custom made for each person. Past events that I have worked at include press days, special in-store events, corporate parties and private weddings and birthday parties.
