This lavishly illustrated and beautifully designed book celebrates the colourful lives and dazzling work of the great twentieth-century fashion illustrators, as chosen by one of today's leading fashion artists, David Downton. With a foreword by the legendary model Carmen DellOrefice, the book follows the careers of Downton's favourite artists, from the great social portraitist of the belle epoque, Giovanni Boldini, to the architect of 1980s New Wave glamour, Tony Viramontes (including along the way such celebrated names as Erte, Carl Erickson, Rene Bouche, Andy Warhol and Antonio Lopez). The book concludes with a portfolio of David Downton's own work, featuring drawings of the Paris haute couture shows and portraits of contemporary icons such as Dita Von Teese and Erin OConnor. Many of the stunning images in "Masters of Fashion Illustration" have not been seen since they were first published.
