“Dear fashion illustration aficionados—I have been waiting for this renovation,” announced Illustration professor Bil Donovan via email. The “renovation” just happened to be the Dior Suite at the New York St. Regis. “I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to do a fashion illustration in watercolor representing a historical timeline of Dior Couture,” said Donovan, the resident Dior painter for cosmetics.
Donovan’s 5-by-9 foot watercolor on canvas for the living room of four women wearing Dior, received mention in The St. Regis Magazine.
“Long Live Fashion Illustration!” said Donovan, who is no doubt off and running to his next great fashion adventure.
