“Art and fashion have always had an awkward connection.
Even though Andy Warhol made mass-production covetable
in the 60s, there remains a perception that the commercial
framework of fashion somehow tarnishes the purity of art.
Still, convergence between these fields is interesting because
it makes art accessible to a whole new audience.
“In 2012, legendary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama designed a
much-hyped collection for Louis Vuitton, while Archibald finalist
Rhys Lee collaborated with Australian label Gorman. Elsewhere,
street style snappers like The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman (whose
work has been purchased by the Victoria & Albert Museum) are
among the best-known photographers working today.
“Fashion illustration has also experienced a revival in recent
years. Perth’s Pippa McManus is an example, holding hugely
successful local exhibitions, and recently beating a field of
international talent for the chance to draw Mary Katrantzou’s
collection at London Fashion Week.”
