When was David Downton born?


David Downton was born in 1959 in Kent, in the south of England. When he was 25, he moved to Brighton, which is where his illustration career began.

His career took off in 1996, when the Financial Times asked him to draw a fashion show.

He has now become one of the most well-known fashion illustrators in the world.
