My Date with Coach

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again:  I had an AMAZING time at Coach during Fashion’s Night Out last Thursday!  It was also fun to see & meet some of my favorite fashion bloggers (Keiko Lynn, Clothes Horse, Coquette, nitro:licious, etc), who were also guests of Coach for the night.

Read the long version of my night HERE.

Below are a few pictures from the event, then a few of the 10 min bags I worked on, and finally the bag I did for Coach’s archive.

    These are great. Definitely worth buying a bag for. I especially like the lady with the flowers as crinoline. I can’t believe you were able to work as people stood over you. Thats impressive.

    Absolutely amazing. Just so everyone knows, she learned everything she knows from me. Well, almost everything.

    I think what you do is amazing. I was wondering, what do you use to draw with? and does it stay on fabric well?

    I usually use a vinyl based paint on wood, but for the Coach event I needed to find a medium that was quick, but still bold. After ordering and trying an assortment of pens, sharpies and paint, I found that DecoColor paint markers (typically used for graffiti) worked best for filling in and/or small spots of color and IDenti pens (dual tipped markers) worked best for the thin outline.

    The color looked great right after I finished a piece, but since it’s still a fairly new medium for me, I’m not sure how long the color will stay before possible fading. I hope this helps!
