Alice + Olivia X Deanna First Illustrations by Deanna First

I can’t seem to get enough of @aliceandolivia lately :) This time live sketching customers at their Madison location! Was amazing to see a percentage of sales going directly to @shalvacenter #shalva. Also, this polka dot lil number is by them too. Each sketch takes 5-7 minutes to sketch. I only need a small table and chair for my events. I bring the rest!

Their latest collection celebrated #KeithHaring and his iconic style which is used on prints and graphics throughout the garments.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG X DEANNA FIRST ILLUSTRATIONS by Deanna First

On Thursday, September 13 I teamed up with the team at DVF to celebrate Fashion Week in-store with offering shoppers a custom sketch with purchase. Live music by the talented DJ Xwnia Wolf was playing throughout the day and champagne were also offered to shoppers. I couldn’t of asked for more a more accommodating and enthusiastic team to work with. They truly made today memorable not just for myself by for every shopper that stopped in!
