An Evening with Megan Hess
Join us for an evening with international fashion artist and bestselling author, Megan Hess!
When illustrator and fashion artist Megan Hess eventually travelled to Paris in her early twenties, it was everything she had dreamt of. The epitome of style, an epicentre of elegance – a must-see on every fashion lover’s list. But where to visit, and what to do?
Since that first trip as a penniless traveller, Megan has become a regular visitor to Paris over the years, acquiring a hefty list of favourite fashion places, to eat, shop and explore. In Paris: Through a Fashion Eye, her fifth book, Megan takes readers on a personal tour of her favourite places in the City of Lights. From people-watching on rue Saint-Honoré to cocktails at the Ritz, this is Paris at its most chic.
Hear Megan discuss her latest book, meet her in person, and have a copy of Paris: Through a Fashion Eye signed for you on the evening.
6.30pm for 7.00pm start.
Megan Hess was destined to draw. An initial career in graphic design evolved into art direction for some of the world’s leading design agencies. In 2008, Hess illustrated the New York Times number one selling book Sex and the City, written by Candace Bushnell. She has since illustrated for Dior Couture, created iconic illustrations for Cartier and Louis Vuitton in Paris, dreamed up animations for Prada and Fendi in Milan, and illustrated the windows of Bergdorf Goodman in New York. Hess’s signature style can also be found on her bespoke limited edition prints and homewares sold around the globe. Her renowned clients include Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Tiffany & Co., Saint Laurent, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Cartier, Balmain, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
Megan is the author of four bestselling books: Fashion House, The Dress, Coco Chanel, and New York: Through a Fashion Eye. She is the Global Artist in Residence for the Oetker Masterpiece Hotel Collection. When she’s not in her studio working, you’ll find her sketching in a cosy corner of her ‘home away from home’ at Le Bristol Paris.
