Love was in the air and all around at the Valentine’s Day party with Rebecca Minkoff at her flagship store on Green Street in Soho, NYC, last Saturday.
Champagne, bubbly people, fun shopping and a special guest – fashion illustrator Meagan Morrison was there to toast up the party!
Meagan is a Toronto-born but NYC-based traveling fashion illustrator with an inspirational blog TravelWriteDraw where she sketches her colorful journey with sparkling personality and amazing talent.
I have known Meagan for quite a while through her beautiful work and blog, but that was the first time we actually met in person. You know that feeling when you imagine somebody before you meet them and, to your surprise, the person turns out to be totally different than your vision of them? This wasn’t the case! Meagan’s personality emerged as sweet and heartwarming, and this is exactly how I imagined her to be. Everybody who came to Rebecca Minkoff’s store that day had a chance to get their portrait drawn by Meagan. It was an amazing experience to watch her working and see how the illustration comes to light.
Meagan uses a combination of gouche, acrylic and pencil in rainbow hues and her work always comes out with a splash of colors. I was watching how, starting with the contour of the face, with careful but confident strokes, a graceful silhouette surfaced from under the Meagan’s brush in no more than 15 mins. How remarkable!
