“David Downton is one of the world’s leading fashion illustrators and celebrity portrait artists. He is artist in residence at Claridges Hotel, writes a blog on Vogue.com and is the author of the hugely successful Masters of Fashion Illustration.”
Downton’s work never leaves me indifferent, his famous illustrations celebrate Fashion and women in such an elegant and classic way, I always feel a rush of inspiration when browsing through his work. And this is exactly how I want to start my week; inspired and rejuvenated.
It would be a dream come true – and a major honor, to have Downtown illustrate me one day but until then, I get to soothe my fantasy by vicariously indulging in his work, namely his latest online exhibition.
“Fashion Illustration Gallery (FIG) presents a group of hand-picked works from the artist’s studio made for Vogue.com, a work made for an Omega campaign and pieces from his ongoing documentation of the Paris Couture shows.”
And I am sharing it with you, for the love of pretty things. Enjoy.
FIG EXHIBITION ONLINE | 18TH JUNE – 18TH JULY 2012
