Last February, during London Fashion Week, I had the pleasure to be invited by REDValentino, in their Sloane Street store, to create bespoke live portraits of their guests during an elegant cocktail party.
The exclusive event aimed to celebrate the arrival of the new REDValentino Spring/Summer 2019 collection in store. I then created quick watercolour portraits of clients rocking some of the new collection pieces.
It was really a lovely evening and I spent a very nice moment drawing non-stop and chatting at the same time with the guests.
The work of Pierpaolo Piccioli for REDValentino and Valentino as well has inspired my illustrations so many times, it has been an honour to be able to work with such a creative team.
Thank you very much to everyone at REDValentino for having me and to the in-store team for their warm welcome and kindness throughout the event.
