Ted's Drawing Room

Miss Led took part in a very unique experience recently for Ted Baker. One which is very up her street; painting portraits live of members of the public in Ted Baker clothes, and literally as they were trying them on in store! Customers in Flagship stores around the UK, Ireland and New York were encouraged to take part by choosing something from the Spring/Summer collection and getting snapped in their Drawing Room photobooth's. These images were then emailed to the studio where eleven illustrators were waiting, the images were pinned up for them to pick and choose between to inspire some portraiture and full figure work. The experience was streamed live and online. Through the Ted Baker Facebook page you could also check in with the artist's progress, watch interviews and even see the portraits complete and framed on site. The following Monday the framed images were then sent to those lucky chosen 'subjects', to receive at their door! Miss Led says "One off event. 11 artists, streamed live over 8 hours producing portraits of shoppers worldwide. What a great day" Watch the video of the day.
