Upper class leading artist (3,6)


I believe the answer is:

top drawer

'upper class' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'leading artist' is the wordplay.
'leading' becomes 'top' (both can mean first-class).
'artist' becomes 'drawer' (drawer is a kind of artist).

(Other definitions for top drawer that I've seen before include "highest quality" , "main attraction" , "Upper-class" , "Highest level of society" , "People of the highest standing" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
