Guess what tomorrow is... Fashion's Night Out! And this year I'll be back in my favorite old stomping grounds to celebrate. I will be at Urban Chic
in Georgetown sketching shoppers, come see me!
So I'm sure you've already heard plenty about Fashion's Night Out by now, but I thought this was too cool not to mention. Better late than never right?
Flash back many many summers to when I was 14...I packed up my bags and headed off to summer arts camp to study ballet. I became fast friends with my bunk mate, Katie Rogers who was there to play the cello. Little did we know that ten years later we'd both be fashion illustrators!
Today Katie is the wonderful artist behind the PAPERFASHION
blog. Katie spent last Friday night as a visiting illustrator at Fashion's Night Out at Coach in New York City painting and drawing on their bags. How amazing is that!? I am so impressed by how well her style of working translated into bag art. I can hardly imagine working with cameras and lots of eyes on me while drawing on a totally new surface. Katie is truly talented and as you can see, I'm pretty proud to say we once shared a rickety old bunk up in Michigan!
