For Mother’s day this year Chanel commissioned lucky me to illustrate complimentary gift cards. I perched in-store at their Covent Garden beauty pop-up (which now probably qualifies as a shop since it has been there for over a year) drawing and painting three chosen designs. Of these the Chanel No5 perfume bottle proved most popular but my favourite to draw was the white camellia which was Gabrielle Chanel’s choice of flower and unofficial logo for the brand. I got to meet some gorgeous and generous customers and work alongside some very beautiful sales staff! Oh la la!
