Mindy Kaling X DSW Event Illustrations by Deanna First by Deanna First

Was thrilled to be a part of creating a series of illustrations for Mindy Kaling's recent collaboration with DSW shoes this past month. I was approached to do a series of watercolor sketches of their shoes which were used on place-cards at their dinner and hung throughout the venue. Attached are a few shots from the event! #DSW #MindyKaling #NYC

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!
