Catching up with fashion illustrator Akiko Hiramatsu

A few nights ago, I attended a blogger dinner hosted by Farfetch with Japanese blogger and illustrator Akiko Hiramatsu. She and I met at a Pinterest workshop over a year ago, and unfortunately hadn't seen each other since. We were so happy to spend time catching up over a fantastic dinner with the Farfetch team, who has been so kind to the both of us.

Akiko recently published an illustrated style book titled "Akiko Hiramatsu's Fashionholic Way," and she surprised me with a copy! I've already started reading it, and I was fascinated about how she got to where she is now, and all the beautiful illustrations and photos of her outfit choices and suggestions. She's been taking on many illustration jobs for fashion magazines and websites as well. But wait, she surprised me again - with my very own style illustration! Akiko, you are the coolest. Thank you!

先日、Farfetchさんが開催したブロガーディナーに行ってきました。ファッションブロガーとイラストレーターの平松昭子さんも同席されていたので、とても楽しい時間を過ごすことができました。平松さんとは、1年以上前にPinterestのワークショップで初めてお会いしてから全然会えていなかったので、久しぶりの再会となりました。Two Roomsでの美味しいお食事とともにFarfetchの方と昭子さんとたくさんお話ができて、本当に良かったです。
