Obviously the bond between fashion and art is not news to anyone's ears, Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton have quite firmly put artistic and fashion collaborations on the map and fashion photography is described as ' the dreamlike aspect of photography'. Fashion is art especially when you take into consideration that a designers sketch is a vision in a drawing.
So that is it, fashion and art evil twin sisters forever and I could talk about this for a whole post but I have a more personal twist on this...
My relationship with art is a funny one- I love it. I love art exhibits, I love learning about artists and photography is something I like to think of myself as quite good at but when it comes to drawing and painting ITS A TRADGEDY. Its especially sad as when I was younger i'd spend hours doodling drawings to match my elaborate stories that i'd spend hours writing, but alas I will never be an artist- photographer? fashion obsessive? journalist? maybe but artist? never. A while ago I had a go at designing and that turned out to be a success (thank god) as what fashion loving, ambitious career choosing girl hasn't had a dwindle in the fashion designers world. But this still doesn't subtract from the state of my artistic talents. So as a half apology half creative spur and the habit of always carrying a camera I created my 'wall'
So as I embrace fashion and hold it with a certain possessiveness I also embrace art in my own way through the eye of a camera, the way I wear my clothes an the extravagant way my eyeliner points out like daggers at the end of my eyes.
As if you needed more proof that fashion and art are BFFLZ.
