A few weeks ago I was contacted by MANHATTAN Magazine’s Brandon Grant. He inquired if I would be interested in sketching customers & guests for KENZO’s Flower Tag Fragrance Launch party. Yes, yes and yes! We started with the Flower Tag Illustration, a pretty, poppy & peppy gal used on the party invitation & in-store displays.
I arrived at Bloomingdale’s last night & was immediately greeted by a gorgeous garden of poppies, as well as Brandon & the sweet staff of MANHATTAN Magazine. I started sketching right away, which is always a blast! I get to meet the most awesome people at events like this & they get to take home a personalized sketch by me. Yay!
Here’s what MANHATTAN had to say about the event:
Kenzo and MANHATTAN magazine hosted a social gathering to celebrate the launch of the new Flower Tag fragrance. Fashion Illustrator Jennifer Lilya was on hand, creating beautiful portraits for guests who purchased a fragrance. The event supported Dress For Success’ Young Executives of Success organization.
Thanks to everyone for a ridiculously fun night of sketching while surrounded by great people & the delicious scent of Flower Tag! Looking forward to more live-sketching & parties!
