Erika Bearman of OscarPRGirl, inspired by the style of her iconic instagram outfit posts let me tell you a little story... This past Tuesday evening, under the deepest oaths of secrecy, the communications team at Oscar de la Renta contacted me to request a birthday sketch of their fearless leader Erika Bearman, who you may know as OscarPRGirl. They needed the artwork by Thursday, so we decided the safest (and most fun) way to get the gift to the birthday girl was for me to stop by the Oscar offices to deliver personally since I was up in New York anyway for the day. Thus begun the most beautiful hour of my day, week, maybe my year. Although they seemed to think I was doing them a favor by hand delivering the birthday gift, it really felt like it was the other way around. Erika (who, by the way, was wearing the exact outfit I had sketched her in) and her lovely assistant, Gabby took me on tour of the office. Highlights include visiting exquisite pieces from Resort 2012 and Spring 2012 as they were carefully pieced together by dedicated seamstresses, taking a turn through the new shoe collection display and mentally making a shopping list of which ones (all of them) that I wanted to buy, watching the designers discuss the spring fabric selections, visiting Oscar's personal office to see some charming candid black and whites of he and Audrey Hepburn laughing over pasta and of course, getting to sit an chat with the girls in the "communications nook" It was incredible to stand right next to the works of a legend as they were stitched, one ruffle at a time, into perfection. It was a magical start to my New-Yorker-hood, and a day I will never forget. I am bursting with inspiration. Off to sketch, have a lovely weekend!
