I have always been a fan of Amelia's magazine and when I heard Amelia was releasing a new book, I knew getting a signed copy at the book launch was a must and what a Fab day it turned out to be. Packed full of creatives from fashion designers to photographers to journalists and bloggers to the most amazing illustrators, offering live illustrations.

Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration, is packed full of the most amazing illustrations showcasing 50 ethical fashion designers, which include Prophetik, Edun, Minna, Goodone and one of my all time  favourites Hetty Rose!

Within 5 minutes of entering I got talking to illustrator Andrea who illustrated the book's front cove,r oh yes I had stumbled across some serious talent here and when she offered to do an illustration of me, like most girls I jumped to the chance.

And the finish product......... I love, love, love! and not only me... now my flat mate is chasing me to get Andrea to draw her too! fancy it too? check out Andrea's website and get in touch or you can always purchase one of her other amazing designs!

A huge congratulations to Amelia for producing another fantastic book, the book is avaliable now and at only £20.00 it's a bargain, ladies you are in for a treat!
