Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration Launch Retrospective!

It's time for another look at the fantastic launch of Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. Featured here on IR and packed full of our contributors and friends this awesome book deserved a truly fabulous party, and that is what we got! It was a wonderful community atmosphere provided by Forward PR and featuring perhaps the most epic baking conceivable by the truly awesome Lily Vanilli. It was an extraordinary night where fashion and illustration got up close and personal in deepest darkest Shoreditch.

The venue, 123 Bethnal Green Road, was an intimate affair and with delicious free beverages and music from the phenomenal 6 Day Riot, The Pipettes and the mystery DJ, Will from the Mystery Jets!

It was great to have a night of high fashion, high hair and high times, and it was great to put names to some of the awesome talent hosted here on IR. So a massive shout out to the dynamo that was Amelia, who didn't rest for a second despite her precarious but rather stunning Nina Dolcetti platforms!

Not only that but there were party bags. Exclusive Moleskines, Dr Hauschka products and the delicate little Tatty Devine necklace it was probably the coolest party bag for illustrators and fashionistas alike.

We had an amazing time surrounded by a surreal amount of talented interesting people, plus ones and style gurus!

So to all those we met, you were ace and we hope to see you up on the Rally soon! To all those we missed we'll get you next time ;)

And finally a massive and well deserved thank you to the belle of the ball, here's to Amelia!
