The next best thing to actually owning couture? Couture art.
The talented David Downtown has been capturing the greatest designer garments since 1996. With illustrations from Dior to Valentino, as well as creating the cover for the book 100 Years of Fashion Illustration (above left), his pieces are just as covet worth as the real designs.
His prints (like the Valli one in yellow) are available for purchase exclusively at Fashion Illustration Gallery… the perfect little gift for a fashionista, don’t you think?
