As I posted earlier I attended an event with David Downton on Thursday where he talked about his work and how he started as a fashion illustrator – he actually wanted to be a film illustrator – and now with some luck and with his great talent he is one of the best fashion illustrators there is.

I got his new book, Masters of Fashion Illustration, where he has collected his favorites of the great twentieth-century fashion artists, from Giovanni Boldini and Bob Peak. In the end of the book there is an interview with David Downton by Tony Glenville and a portfolio of his work. Here are some of my favorites:
