When Art and Fashion collide.

ashion has always taken its cues from art. In the late 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli created whimsical garments inspired by artist Salvador Dalí, and Hermès designer Lola Prusac looked to Dutch artist Piet Mondrian to create iconic block print dresses. Those dresses would go on to influence French designer Yves Saint Laurent, and the list goes on and on. But this isn’t a one-way street. It’s a dialogue. Take, for instance, sculptor Tom Sachs, whose work critiquing the fundamentals of fashion and commercialism led him to collaborate with Nike. Or Vanessa Beecroft, who has incorporated fashion into her performance pieces with models in haute couture designs. In a similar spirit of collaboration, we gathered artworks from local Baltimore artists and paired them with fall looks that were inspired by their lines, colors, and textures. As this symbiotic bond continues to grow, it will continue to inspire us.
