Live Event Fashion Drawing

Live event drawing is a unique & fun way to upscale your event, entertaining guests with great personalized gifts to take home! Perfect for your corporate events, weddings, product launches, brand activations, runway shows and more. 

I draw guests in chic, fashionable style, which takes roughly 10 minutes per guest, 5-8 guests per hour with transition times.

Recent live event drawing clients include Hermès, Ferragamo, Max Mara, Emporio Armani, Thom Browne, Porsche, Bloomingdale’s, Vince, Google and more.

Digital Live Sketching

I will be drawing on iPad Pro. I will gift a printed copy (postcard size) to the guests on site, and email all the digital files to you after the event. I can also e-mail a digital copy to the guests with your custom message upon your request. Options include:

  • Printing (postcard size, will gift a copy to the guests)
  • Custom background on digital canvas (e.g. NY skyline, flowers)
  • Custom branding on digital canvas (e.g. logo, message)
  • Envelop with custom branding

On Paper Live Sketching

I will be drawing on paper with a Japanese sumi pen and watercolor. I will gift the original artwork to the guests on site. Options include:

  • Custom branding stamp (e.g. logo, message)
  • Envelop with custom branding

Live Drawing Artist

Chloe Takahashi
Owner & Artist

I am a fashion illustrator / author based in New York City. I’m originally from Japan and have international followings (Instagram : 48K followers, Red Book in China: 21K followers). I specialize in live event drawing as well as custom illustrations for fashion and beauty brands, editorials, and retailers.

Other Services

In addition to live drawing, my other art services include:

Event invitation design
Custom illustration for gift packages
Painting on objects


I am based in New York City, but I am willing to travel.  I will charge a travel fee that covers time and expenses such as hotel, flight, food, and transportation.

Pre-made, custom illustrations for your guests & VIP clients are also available in addition to live drawing. I will work on them to your specification in advance of your events – all ready to gift to your guests!

It’s completely up to you depending on your event and guest counts.  For your reference, I can draw roughly 5-8 guests per hour.

No, they do not. I can either draw them live while they wait at the table or take a photo of the guests to work on so that they can continue to shop, eat, mingle at the event!
