Front Row with David Downton

Magenta hosted world renowned fashion illustrator David Downton during his visit to Perth to launch his Australian Premiere exhibition, Front Row.

Front Row with David Downton featured a capsule collection of 12 works drawn from David’s observations sitting front row at the 2015 Paris Fashion Week couture runway shows. The exhibition was presented by Garden City and held at There Is, a multidisciplinary creative space located in Northbridge that is overseen and coordinated by Magenta.

The launch on Wednesday 16 September saw a high profile guest list invited to walk the red carpet and view the runway through the eyes of Mr. Downton. Beautiful sculptured floral installations adorned the venue with guests served dainty canapés, French mineral water and vodka Brambles against the backdrop of the sound of a white baby grand piano.
