Streetstyle / Affordable Art Fair - 4 Best Looks Illustrated

Loving: For the print obsessed, artist Emma Hack was on site with a live art demonstration. Where she painted a model's body to camouflage her into an elaborate floral backdrop.

This past Friday, at the Arty-licious evening during the Affordable Art Fair, hundreds of chic art lovers convened to gather inspiration, drink a few cocktails and pick up some new pieces for their homes. So I stopped by pen and notebook in hand to illustrate some of the best looks from the evening and to find out what was on everyone's to-buy list for Sassyhongkong.com.

Keep reading to see my four other favourite looks and some photos from the fair.

Kitty N. Wong / Fashion Streetstyle Illustration - Carol
Who: Carol, marketing professional.
Loving: The serene pastel portraits by Japanese artist Tatsuhito Horikoshi at Ohshima Fine Art.

Kitty N. Wong / Fashion Streetstyle Illustration - Graphic Airlines hipster couple
Who: Tat and Vi, artists of Graphic Airlines.
Loving: 2Shywashere, the Parisian artist represented by Mr Chow & Assoicates. The conceptual graphic canvases in neon were a perfect fit for Vi's bright blue pencil skirt and this art duo's namesake.

Kitty N. Wong / Fashion Streetstyle Illustration - Yancy sunny yellow
Who: Yancy, freelance columnist.
Loving: Joel Moens de Hase's libidinous photo-mosaic at Damina Gallery, intimate snapshots of women's bodies, thousands of them are stitched together to create the elaborate final portrait by the Belgium artist.

And that's me! In front of the Mersuka Dopazo and Teresa Calderon Geisha paintings. I'm wearing a upcycled lace and applique flower shirt I made when I competed in the Redress Ecochic Design Awards.

My pick for the Fair: The giant black and white portrait of glamorous Chinese movie star Fan Bing Bing by photographer Kenneth Willardt at Vogel Sang Art Gallery. Although it might have been just a little too big for both my wallet and our apartment's tiny old elevator.

All the streetstyle illustrations are available as prints now on my Etsy shop and I'll be printing off some postcards next week, so check them out.
