The magic of Dior and Galeries Lafayette for the Christmas season
Only eight clients were invited for this lunch. They were meeting for a fundraiser and Tiffany had decided to make an animation by inviting me to draw their portraits live. To encourage them in their philanthropic endeavors, Tiffany welcomed them in the new pop-up café: the Tiffany Café.
WHAT COULD BE MORE MAGICAL THAN DRAWING DIOR'S CUSTOMERS AT GALERIES LAFAYETTE FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS?
When you think of “Parisian department stores”, you think of Galeries Lafayette, don’t you? And when we think of windows and Christmas tree, we think again of Galeries Lafayette. So when this magic is mixed with the magic of the house of Dior, I feel like a fish in water, because I know that I’m going to draw beautiful, elegant and sophisticated clients live!
I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN DIOR CONTACTED ME TO DESIGN THEIR CLIENTS LIVE.
It’s been a while since I’ve worked for this prestigious house and I love this brand. Designing in Galeries Lafayette was also a first for me.
WHY IS THE LIVE PORTRAIT DIFFERENT WITH DIOR CLIENTS?
Dior clients always have that little extra something, that elegance that I particularly like to draw in their portraits.
I photographed them at the beginning of their visit and, while they took their time to choose the jewel of their dreams and enjoy a glass of champagne, I drew their portrait live.
15 MINUTES IS THE PERFECT TIME TO DRAW A PORTRAIT AND ALSO TO TASTE SOME MACAROONS.
It was really a pleasure to draw all these portraits live, and frame them with the beautiful Dior envelopes provided for this purpose. I’m talking about it on my Instagram and showing you everything.
