The Report: London

SEE IT! DRAW IT! REPORT IT! DESIGN IT! INSPIRE YOU WITH IT! TO BE SEEN WEARING IT!

British Fashion Designers fulfilled everyone’s expectations this year. Old taboos were broken down and new attitudes were confidently exhibited.

As the year closes, London especially displayed some inspiring moods and imaginative structures for the body to adorn. Attracting a dedicated crowd who awaited with anticipation, models were transformed into their designers visions and I did what comes naturally – drawing rough and finished works. Paying tribute to all the designers creations we just love to see. The show opened and out came star models that knew how to sell a dress.

Meet the Artist & get copies of your drawings by appointment at The May Fair Hotel, London. The official sponsors of London Fashion Week.

The Doorman by Marc McGreevy

During my first days as Artist in Residence for The May Fair Hotel, I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful clothes and hats the doormen wore.  I felt that they were unaware of their grace, elegance and impeccable manners which set them apart from any other hotel in London.

This Artwork is of Pete, The Doorman, who has all these astonishing qualities and an incredible style which drew me to him.
