$65.00

Coming soon

The first monograph on the internationally renowned fashion artist David Downton.

With a foreword by Christian Lacroix, and an afterword by Dita Von Teese, this book showcases more than 150 of David’s drawings of celebrated women from the worlds of film, fashion, and style.

The illustrations are enlivened by fascinating anecdotes revealing behind-the-scenes stories, and by specially commissioned photographs documenting the glamour of portrait sittings in London, Paris, and New York.

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, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, V magazine, Chanel, Tiffany’s New York, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harrods, Topshop, Lancôme, and the V&A.
