Artsy Fashion...

comment(s)

Fashion and art are naturally quite close, with fashion designers often looking to the works of artists for inspiration. Some would even argue that fashion is an art form in itself. And true enough, the higher we look, the closer fashion and pure art seems to be.

Of course, most of the really abstract art-house fashion we see on the catwalk would feature apparel that no sane person would wear outside a fashion show. But that doesn’t mean that art-fashion is not something we can see—or even wear—in our day-to-day activities...

First of all, “real” art-house fashion will usually represent certain cultural values or perhaps send a message about certain issues. However, the more commercial, daily, and casual art-fashion style is more about drawing attention to the wearer...

Some of the more popular choices for this are colorful brush strokes (usually on dark backgrounds), graffiti, and even cartoons. Yes, street art is a popular theme—even amongst high end brand names. But more importantly, though, these kinds of imagery are all about bright and bold colors that are energetic, playful, and very enthusiastic.

On the one hand, artsy fashion is probably not for everybody, and certainly not for every occasion. But if you want to stand out in a way that’s not only unique and artistic but also very much expressive... well, then this is the style for you.
