Description

The first monograph on renowned fashion illustrator David Downton.

With a Foreword by Christian Lacroix, and an Afterword by Dita Von Teese, this book showcases around 150 of David's drawings, featuring celebrities, actors, models, and fashion designers. The illustrations are enlivened by fascinating anecdotes revealing behind-the-scenes stories from the world of fashion. David recounts his inspirations, and specially commissioned photographs show him at work in his residence at Claridge's Hotel in London, where the great and good sit for his portraits.

Over the last decade, David Downton has gained a reputation as one of the world's leading fashion artists. His classically elegant, yet highly contemporary images have been a strong factor in the resurgence of interest in fashion illustration. Having originally trained in graphics, David's natural ability with the human form, spontaneous approach and economy of line rapidly led to a hugely successful career working with, among others, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, V magazine, Chanel, Tiffany's New York, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harrods, TopShop, Lancôme and the V&A Museum.
