Fashion Imitates Art: Would You Wear It?

July 7, 2008 by SheFindsChristine

What would happen if what we knew as art collided with what we know as fashion? As far as I'm concerned fashion is art. It is designed, created, and made into the masterpieces you see below by artists. Instead of hanging on our walls, it walks down the runway, down the street, and down the corridor of your office – which I'm sure some of you will debate considering the get-ups of the fashionably-challenged that you work with.

Instead of spending my money on wall art I spend it on wearable art. There are so many more opportunities to impress people with what you wear than what you have hanging on your walls. So why not wear clothing that looks like your favorite pieces of art? 

You could easily be mistaken for Van Gogh's Starry Night walking down the street in this Zac Posen strapless bubble dress ($3000, was $4000). Spring/Summer's art school trend was all over the runway and Posen's moody print leaves a haunting mysterious atmosphere in its wake.

"An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have." Well Andy, you're right. We don't need this Moschino Cheap and Chic Lady Dress ($315, was $630) – but we want it.

The Miu Miu tunic ($1074, was $1790) is so Picasso-esque, it's a bit creepy – and I'm not just referring to the look on the girl's face on the frock. The geometric colorblock backgrounds, disproportionate figures, and the abstractness are so similar that Picasso's Girl in the Mirror could be looking at this dress in her reflection.
