As part of the London Fashion Week schedule this September I had the opportunity to draw both backstage and front row for the Hector Maclean show "Orlando in Opulence" at St.Pauls Church in Covent Garden. I was with fellow artists from Drawing Cabaret Couture and we were treated to a fantastic show from Hector of a collection made entirely from deadstock materials, repurposed into couture garments.
Another fun aspect to the show was that while waiting for it to begin I live sketched a couple of the guests across the aisle and then gifted the portraits to them, much to their surprise. I didn't know it at the time but they were celebrity guests Actress Roxanne McKee (Hollyoaks/Game of Thrones/Lip Service) and Gbemisola Ikumelo Bafta award winning actress and writer! (BlackOps/Famalam/Aloto) they both shared the drawings on instagram and Roxanne actually asked for a photo with me!
