Megan Hess in her new role as “Artist in Residence” for Oetker Collection, will be illustrating each of the Collection properties in her own unique style. The first illustrations of Le Bristol Paris and The Lanesborough in London have been revealed this week during Megan’s world book tour promoting her latest book ‘New York, through a fashion eye’.
Megan Hess was destined to draw. An initial career in graphic design transcended into art direction for some of the world’s leading advertising agencies and for Liberty department store in London. In 2008 Hess illustrated the New York Times number one selling book, ‘Sex and The City’. Following the release, Hess was catapulted onto the world stage and began illustrating Portraits for the New York Times, Italian Vogue and Vanity Fair Magazine. She has since written and illustrated three bestselling books: Fashion House, The Dress and Coco Chanel, and has become one of the world’s most sought after fashion illustrators.
Megan spoke of her new role; “I’m so thrilled to become the “Artist in Residence” for the Oetker Collection. As an artist, one of the biggest sources of inspiration for me is travel. My work and the bespoke illustrations that I create take me all around the world on luxury projects and it is with great excitement that I will now be sketching and staying at the world’s most beautiful masterpiece hotels with the Oetker Collection. From the incredible architecture, to the finest cuisine and of course, the world’s chicest people, I will be sketching them all at each Oetker Collection property. My aim is to bring the bespoke and unique luxury of each hotel to life in illustration”
Frank Marrenbach, CEO Oetker Collection, added “We are delighted to be working with Megan, her iconic style and eye for detail fit beautifully with the hotels of our Collection. We are very excited to soon be sharing Megan’s uniquely stylish portrayal of our masterpiece properties.”
