Visiting the Fashion Illustration Gallery was quite impressing and I’m glad that I had this opportunity seeing the big Illustrator’s work was fascinating as I’m an artist as well and I’m drawing mostly females portraits, I found the connection with the illustrator David Downton as his focusing more on the beauty faces the expression on his drawings are mostly sketches in black and white with a soft colour touch!
The impact that they have in the media is quite big his establish a reputation as one of the world’s leading fashion artist. His classically elegant, yet highly contemporary images have been a key factor in the revival of interest in the tradition of fashion illustration.
David Downton has been featured in V Magazine, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Times, The New York Times, Vanity Fair. David’s commercial client are Chanel, Dior, Tiffany & Co, Topshop, Harrods, Estee Lauder and V&A Museum.
