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!
