It's actually quite incredible.

There’s no doubt David Downton is one of the world’s best fashion illustrators of all time.

Cementing his reputation for over a decade, Downton is renowned for his ability to capture a woman’s beauty in just a few careful strokes. It’s actually quite incredible. 

So bringing his works together in a single hard-cover book just screams 'bestseller'. Portraits of the World’s Most Stylish Women exhibits some of Downton’s best work.

Subjects range from the new school of Victoria’s Secret Angels to industry greats such as Jerry Hall, Amanda Harlech and Joan Collins, and are accompanied by little insights into most meetings. 

More than just visually captivating, it also guarantees a good read.
