David Downton. Downton is quite possibly the best known fashion illustrator in the business. His style is so minimal but the integrity, structure, and design of his illustrations is flawless. Based on what I’ve heard, when he does a drawing he does many different studies of the same subject on pieces of acetate. Then he takes all the drawing and overlays them over a light box. What happens next is magic. He proceeds to pick and choose the best strokes, lines, and shapes out of all of the drawings and poof!

Downton illustrates for major fashion magazines and designers. He has a website which is provided with this post which I highly recommend.
