Luminato’s Big Bang Bash 2013

Above: a few of my favourites from Dolls by Viktor&Rolf, on now for FREE til June 30, 2013 at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

I had a wonderful time at the 2013 Luminato Festival’s Big Bang Bash gala last Saturday June 8! The event celebrated the launch of special art installation Dolls by Viktor&Rolf at the Royal Ontario Museum, where numerous porcelain dolls donned miniature versions of their haute couture dresses. Along with fashion illustrator Danielle Meder, I sketched guests while they mingled, nibbled, and danced while decked out in the prettiest frocks and chicest suits.

This was a dream event since it featured plenty of my three fave F’s: fashion, fun and food. I’m so honoured to have sketched alongside Danielle, who is a key inspiration for my foray into fashion illustration and live sketching. And it was through her that I met Tatiana Read of Knot PR who ultimately suggested me for this fabulous event. Thanks ladies!

My highlights from the night: seeing actor Willem Dafoe in the crowd (he was performing in a play in town), sketching blogger Jay Strut, Fashion magazine editor-in-chief Bernadette Mora, and many many more! More photos on Luminato’s Facebook page and Flare magazine.
