Let me start by saying, Fashion’s Night Out was such an incredible experience!

I had a stressful week leading up to the event, but managed to make my way to NYC. The event flew by… but I had an amazing time.  Most of these photos were taken by friends on their phones (thanks to everyone who came out!!). It felt so good to have all of them there, and see some I haven’t seen since summer camp @ Interlochen 8 years ago!

I love illustrating, but I’ve never had the chance to do it on the spot before. I was prettty nervous… but once I got started it was no big deal :).

Again, thanks to everyone who came out. Sorry if I didn’t get a chance to talk to you much… it was a bit stressful trying to get all the bags done by the end of the night!

Really, this experience was such a dream for me. It’s amazing that all these wonderful things are possible merely from a blog… that started just over a year ago. I can’t imagine life without PAPERFASHION… as corny as that sounds :P!

Coach was so kind to put me up at the Ace Hotel for the night (I’ve wanted to stay there for so long!)!! Also, Coach has some pretty cool stuff in store right now- I LOVE these wedges! Check them out!

Thank you Coach!! I am so honored to have been a part of such a great event!

    Lovely illustrations!
    If you don’t mind me asking, did you use acrylic paint or watercolour? I’m wondering because it’s amazing how the watercolour stayed on the canvas.

    first off, I would like to say it looks fabulous. but I have a FASHION EMERGENCY! It sounds kind of cliche the way I said it but I’m serious! I need to make a great top for THIS Friday and I’ve left it abit late. All I have is a white cotton T-shirt and a black about 1sqm of fabric. Do you have any ideas for me?

  17. inspired says:

    also it needs 2 be a casual style and can you reply by the end of Wednesday. If you haven’t by then, don’t worry about it.

It would have been so exciting if I could have been there for Fashion’s Night Out to see you in action! Illustrating all of those bags was such a good idea and I wish I could have bought one. Just wanted to let you know how LUX we think you are!
