For one day only, guests in attendance will learn first-hand about Bil’s fascinating work to date as part of a live talk, alongside Gray M.C.A. fashion curator, Connie Gray.

Donovan’s roots lie in traditional fine art painting and watercolour techniques where he embodies a unique creative language that oozes glamour, luxury and style.  His instantly recognisable illustrative style has led to an enviable list of clients, including the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, St. Regis Hotels, Saks Fifth Avenue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.  For the last 12 years, Donovan has also held the esteemed title of Artist-in-Residence for Christian Dior.

 

The event forms part of Gray M.C.A gallery’s wider programme of events to launch their new exhibition: The Art of Elegance at Cromwell Place, London on 13th September. Bringing together an exquisite selection of iconic original artworks by Bil Donovan, the exhibition celebrates the beauty and grace of fashion as captured by the supreme master of elegance. An ode to his revered legacy as a major force in determining the fashion renaissance, The Art of Elegance marks the first time such a large body of Donovan’s work has been gathered for an exhibition.
