The Art of Fashion

Written by Martin Lucas

I was in Barcelona last week and boy oh boy was I inspired by all sorts of cool experiences.

It’s hard not to be inspired by this awesome mess we humans have created. I was (of course) also shopping during this trip and super-inspired by all sorts (I suggest you ladies check out & Other Stories as a high quality, reasonably priced, unique brand). It got me thinking about what inspires people in fashion. After a little investigation, this week we ended up with #FashionArt, having been used 1.1m times, making it a highly specialised term (vs say #Fashion at 418m!).

Art meets Fashion, Fashion meets Art. Here is our interpretation of eight winners:

I’m a big fan of a dramatic collar in female attire. You can add that feeling of mystical / spiritual storytelling to this beautiful shot.

Postmodern art as a super-chilled couple do their best to sell that laidback vibe.

Why don’t more brands show the steps of design? Seeing the artistry is win for any audience (we have the data to prove it). In this case, it shows the attention to detail and pure love of the craft.

A friend of mine designs and draws like this. I used to love just watching her at work as it’s pure creativity in motion. Ideas to pencils to catwalk to wearing it on your shoulders :).

A vision of the future from the artist’s mind.

In fashion, it can be easy to lose sight of what makes haute couture vs fast fashion staple clothing. We should never lose sight of the effort and true artistry of fashion designers and how it comes from many parts of our day-to-day lives. Art is subjective and, much like fashion, we choose what we love and discard what we don’t and that becomes our love and our bias.

Loyalty is a design away…...
