David Downton - Fashion Illustrator

David Downton was born in Kent in 1959. He studied illustration/graphics, beginning his illustration career in 1984. For the first 12 years he worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from advertising and packaging to illustrating fiction, cook books and, occasionally, fashion before becoming well recognised. In 1996, the Financial Times commissioned him to draw at the couture shows and since then David has become known principally as a fashion illustrator. 
David’s commercial client list includes: Tiffany & Co, Bloomingdales, Barney’s, Harrods, Top Shop, Chanel, Dior, L’Oreal, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and the V&A Museum. In 1998, he began working on a portfolio of portraits (from life) of some of the world’s most beautiful women, including Erin O’Connor, Paloma Picasso, Catherine Deneuve, Linda Evangelista, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Iman and Dita Von Teese. In 2007, David launched Pourquoi Pas? the first ever journal of Fashion Illustration.
