Fashion and Art Collide

                                                            Fashion and Art Collide

“Why have there been no great women artists?”, a statement written on the DiorT-shirt which debuted in the Paris Fashion Week show by the designer, Chiuri’s Collection - I am certain it will create a style sensation which will trickle down to street style… Which begs the question?

Why is there so much of Art in Fashion? Has there always been this great connect?

First of all - I don’t believe that Art is all about Men. They may have had their fair share of over representation. Gender aside, all is fair in Love, War & Art & Fashion. I do believe we are catching up, or I would like to see more of it happening! Perhaps taking it to the fashionable streets is a sign of change to come.

I started my wearable art on scarves over ten years ago-creating and honing the vision with my own silk screens from my photography and art..until i decided a few years ago to experiment on a broader level with designing and manufacturing.  Let's just say I have a strong entrepreneurial drive. Sometimes my friends and fans will look at my work and say“Is that a scarf?” When told they aren’t, there is a look of dismay. My imagery needs to be created into a design and not all of it fits into scarf design..you might just say it collides with the very idea. Then a lightbulb goes off, maybe collision sparks more art; more design & more Fashion & Art.

RIDING IN THE CAR, with coffee and my husband..on the way to the beach, I was listening to Sirius Radio, and one of my favorite interviewers, Howard Stern, was interviewing one of my favorite comedians, Jerry Seinfeld. The show was hilarious..but also fashion (In)formative.

“Why does Jerry Seinfeld tie his look together with a sports jacket?”

Neoprene Fashion

 Neoprene Fashion About Art, Dance, and Leisure                            

Getting the last few days of summer in when you want it to last…this past weekend was incredible on Long Island, the waves were crashing, the temperatures were high and surfers were plenty.

 There was Neoprene on the sand, and some in the water. My new found friends were sporting their wetsuits and tempting the waves, and last looks of summer from the guys.  I am finding more and more designers using this fabric-(Neoprene), in new and inventive ways. Taking this sportier textile to the high end luxury market  and finding a new fit. It can create some fetching attitude. We wear leisure athletic wear on an everyday basis. It's fun to see how it plays out in everyday life, as more and more designers have embraced it. I am loving it on a grey ruffled sweatshirts, as pictured here in the designed sweater by Dice Kayek. I am finding it on bomber jackets, and on laser cut clothes...it translates to an active and fashion lifestyle. Maybe I will make a scarf collection with it. What are your thoughts on the textile? Comfortable? Chic?  Would love to hear from you. Looking forward to seeing it in Fall Fashion. Somehow it might make the last week of summer endless.

Let Your Expression of Your Senses Guide You

Wild Colors

Some color comes from imagination where nature and the surreal collide into a swirl of fantasy. Where shapes and designs take on a new and fresh dimension. I find inspiration from the color, and shapes in all natural forms of life. It is this constant flux that keeps me in awe, and it is the well that I always go to! A truer source is hard to describe.
