Thank you for all our dearest friends and customers who joined us on the ‘A Day in Feathers’ event. We had the honour of having the acclaimed illustrator Dennis Nothdruft, curator of the Fashion and Textile Museum, doing live fashion illustration at Feathers Knightsbridge Store.
It was a very hot and stuffy afternoon when London was struck by the heat wave. Ice cold gin and tonic was served on a rusty wooden table with fresh lemon wedges. When the watercolour and colour felt pens were laid out on the sketch pads, everyone was so anticipated and excited like school kids, waiting for Dennis to work his magic on the blanc paper.
We are surprised to see in a matter of merely a few minutes, using the free flowing ‘Snapshot’ approach, Dennis had instantly captured the spirit, essence and the personalities of the whole store. In the generation where everyone uses smartphones to record their lives, these ‘snapshots’ seem to be capturing more than photos.
Here are some of our favourite moments of the event:
