Drink & Draw #edfashion

Ruth and the other guests drawing Sarah in her fab cupcake dress!

Last night a unique event took place at The Biscuit Factory (which yes- actually used to make biscuits!) in Leith. Run by Satisfashion and Lanyard Media, the team behind revolutionary hashtag #edfashion , Drink & Draw invited bloggers, fashionistas and artists alike to view exclusive pieces from local designers and sketch our interpretations, while we shared a glass of bubbly or three. We are already excited for the sequel!

The first outfit – “The Walk Of Wonder Dress” was designed by Fernanda Godship (click here to view her whole collection), an ECA Fashion student, and modelled by stylist and fashion writer Lynne McCrossan. A dramatic gown of royal blue satin and ombre chiffon ruffles, this proved quite a challenge to sketch!

Outfit number two, styled simply with black drainpipe jeans and bare feet, was the fantastic “Shephard’s Plaid” from DC Dalgeish, the world’s only dedicated hand-crafted tartan mill (check them out here). It was modelled by Charles Doherty, model at Colours Agency

This feathered beauty, “The Serenity Dress”, was designed by Kathryn Love, a talented independent fashion designer- take a look at her website and you’ll definitely agree! One half of the Urbanity team Sarah Ewen modelled; the Jennifer Lawrence-inspired gown fit her like a dream. It was definitely a crowd favourite!

Sarah took to the stage again in the masterpiece that was “The Cupcake”,  by Costume design graduate Jenni Thomson– follow the creative fashion lover on twitter @CostumeJenniWe all thoroughly enjoyed sketching this look- with it’s cartoon colours and wacky shapes, complete with fluffy hi-tops and rainbow lollipops!

And finally, here’s Lynne again modelling the “Force To Be Reckoned With” dress by Kathryn Love.

Another full-length feathered frock, this proved a tricky texture to draw but a wonderful silouhette to play with.

All hats were designed by Sally Ann Provan (click here for more info).
