#EdFashion Announces Inaugural Event

Drink & Draw 620x350

#edfashion, Edinburgh’s social media hashtag for fashion, are hosting their first event this month – ‘Drink & Draw’ – an evening of fashion sketching and socialising at The Biscuit Factory.

Five models wearing designs and pieces from Edinburgh’s independent designers and boutiques will be presented individually for guests to draw, after which they are encouraged to share their sketches on social media using hashtag #edfashion and tag the designers and boutiques being worn. Intervals between presentations allow for networking, drink top-ups and pencil sharpening.

Organisers Gary Anderson and Laura Russell commented… ‘We launched #edfashion in March as a tool to help Edinburgh fly the fashion flag for itself and to promote fashion events happening around the city. We are very excited for Drink & Draw as it’s our first event and because it’s different from a traditional catwalk show.

You don’t need to be an expert artist or a die-hard fashion fan to take part; it’s more about having fun, making new connections and celebrating Edinburgh’s independent designers and boutiques.’

Drink & Draw is the first of a series of events #edfashion have planned for 2015. Their next event will take place in October, with details being announced at the end of the summer. Keep up to date by following @edfashiontweets on Twitter and @edfashion on Instagram.
