Thurs 24th Sept: Andy Macgregor doodles Danielle Scutt

Someone else to employ print was New Gen designer Danielle Scutt whose collection was covered for The Daily with live illustration by Andy Macgregor.  He had to literally sketch at the show and then sit at a desk in the office of Somerset House to add finishing touches for the immediate push to press.  What a great way to demonstrate the designs straight from the runway into a sketchbook.  That's the way it used to be before cameras were allowed and I'm glad to see the technique brought back............well done to The Daily for the idea and well done to Andy for another stellar set of scribbles!  Andy confesses to taking a camera along to take back-up shots for reference if needed.........but his battery ran out at the very start so his illustrations really are impressively just from a mental impression  ..............
Thanks so much Andy for supplying me with these exclusive tears that weren't printed in the final paper!
