Thanks to my lovely friend Gail McInnes, I once again had the opportunity to attend the Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow. This is one of the best fashion events I’ve ever had the pleasure to attend – Scottish fashion people are friendly and smiling, and they dress up with infectious enthusiasm. I was thrilled to chat briefly with three of my favourite fashion notables at dinner – Alexa Chung, Colin McDowell and Christopher Kane. You can check out Gail’s coverage of the event on FLARE.com - plus I want to give a shout out to a dear fashion blog friend, Jonathan Pryce, who was honoured as Photographer of the Year.
While I wasn’t there in an official capacity, I still took the opportunity to practice live sketching the red carpet arrivals as the attendees were in full regalia. This time I experimented with water-based markers. Above are sketches of Millie of Made In Chelsea fame (yes, I admit to watching that show), and male supermodel David Gandy. Below left is Model of the Year nominee Tara Nowy, and on the lower right is Jade Ewan of the pop group Sugababes. Thanks to Stephanie and Emma who helped me identify these subjects.
