Amelias Compendium of Fashion Illustration Launch

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the launch of attending the launch of Amelia Gregorys newest book Amelias Compendium of fashion illustration. The book features ilustrations and profiles by 30 of the hottest rising illustrators as well as profiles and information on some of the most innovative and creative eco conscious fashion designers. In case you don't know who Amelia Gregory is she is the brains and beauty behind Amelia Magazine (http://ameliasmagazine.com) an online magazine that looks at the best and brightest ethical fashion designers along side fabulous fashion illustrations it really is a must read.

The launch was attended by some of the UK's biggest bloggers and fashion designers. I grabbed the chance to purchase the book and wow its amazing. The illustrations are some of the best i've ever seen and I had the chance to meet some of the bloggers that i've forged relationships online with including Sarah of sarahs-scribbles.com, Nikki of nikkinakkilou.co.uk, Cherie of cheriecity.co.uk and Koral of koralxo.blogspot.com. I also met an amazing jewellery designer who makes Japanese style kawaii jewellery - expect a post on her very soon. She had the coolest bright blue hair and fashion sense and was super nice. It took me an hour to pluck up the courage to ask to take her photo.

All in all I had an awesome time but I wish i'd plucked up the courage to chat to more bloggers that I recognised.

  1. Wow looks like you had a fantastic time it's pretty cool that you got to meet up with other bloggers. I've only ever been to one event in the past. There was someone I recognised from twitter there but didn't end up talking to them as I can be quite shy especially being the only guy there! I'll look forward to seeing the post you do on the Japanese Jewellery.
