Tara Dougans adds the final touches at 11:00 GMT
Chanel couture illustrated live at SHOWstudio

The striking illustrator and art director Tara Dougans will be in her familiar spot at SHOWstudio for one more day of couture coverage. Tune in at 11:00 GMT for the beginning of the interactive LiveStudio where SHOWstudio Shop’s Niamh White will chat to Dougans about her work to date and ask the most recent viewer questions. 

Yesterday we saw Dougans discuss her choice of tools and the importance of styling. Often Dougans conceptualises and styles her illustrations with similar principles to a photographic editorial, featuring various key fashion designers or labels to communicate a specific idea. She also highlighted how important it was for aspiring illustrators to find their unique voice and to use that to present themselves in a provocative way. 

Dougans resumes her couture undertakings at 11:00 GMT for another stint of painstakingly detailed linework. She will break at 14:15 GMT so you only have a few hours to post your questions. Watch as Dougans embarks on a new artwork interpreting a look from the Maison Martin Margiela collectioin as it transforms, stroke by delicate stroke.
