It was a delight to meet Sarah Williams of Sarah Scribbles, more about who is a prolific tweeter and blogger.

Ahhhh, try the lovely Joana Faria. She came to the ACOFI launch event all the way from Portugal, where she works in advertising as an art director. As a relative newbie to the world of fashion illustration she has developed an impressive style very quickly – stick thin figures sport impressively large hair and big eyes that emphasise the architecture of an outfit. Here’s her contributions to the great ACOFI illustrated launch party.

Ellie Loughran Michelle Urvall Nyrén
Ellie Loughran of Pretty Much Penniless was beautifully turned out. And her blog about the event is absolutely stunning – what wonderful images!

Michelle Urvall Nyrén is as elegant in person as her fashion illustrations, pharm which she creates in just a few graceful watercolour strokes. She’s also a very talented fashion and textiles designer so until recently fashion illustration was just something she did on the side. I think she’s far too fabulous to leave her second career on the back burner. What do you reckon?

Here are her portrait versions of my tea party guests. For some reason she managed to pick a total of three beautiful girls called Ellie to illustrate. What are the chances? Just delightful.

Ellie Broughton Michelle Urvall Nyrén
Ellie Broughton is an East London based journalist who writes for The Wealth Collection.

Ellie Good Eggmag editor Michelle Urvall Nyrén
Ellie Good from ethical culture magazine Egg Mag has been a big supporter of my antics for some time, and I was very happy to welcome her along for tea. An amazing lady who set up her own independent magazine to promote ethical fabulousness.

Zoe Robinson Michelle Urvall Nyrén
Egg Mag contributor Zoë Robinson of Think Style also came along. She runs an image consultancy specialising in eco fashion… very interesting stuff.

Naomi Law Michelle Urvall Nyrén
Michelle also captured Naomi Law in action, her blood red lips glowing out from beneath her sleek hair.

Philippa Dunn Michelle Urvall Nyrén
I had a great chat with Philippa Dunn from the House of Illustration, which is a super exciting project that was initiated by illustrator god Quentin Blake. I hope to get involved with some of their upcoming events in the future.

Tamara Cincik Michelle Urvall Nyrén
She also snatched a sketch of ethical stylist Tamara Cincik from afar, who she described as very pregnant and beautiful. As indeed she is.
