Andy Warhol once said that:
Fashion looks more artistic than art itself.
With that statement about fashion and visual arts, some Durham students below pointed out the relationship between art and fashion. They also stated some of the limitations that occur within these aesthetic fields.
Ruo Yu Ow
Basically, this Durham student didn’t completely agree with the statement of Warhol. For Yu Ow being a fashion illustrator, examining and analyzing every detail of the outfits is similar to being in love with an artwork. Yu Ow also said that articulation of fashion sense generally requires the artistic skills of material selection and imaginative decision-making in choosing colors and patterns.
Fashion is also an art for Grace Buckley. It becomes art because of the visual effect which is an essential factor as functionality. The visual effect in fashion and art is also highly subjective.
Both art and fashion have been the same channel for expression. Tiplady stated things that exemplify the relationship between art and fashion. For instance, the human body and clothing are good canvases for artists. The garment stands as a brushstroke that differently fits into transforming particular styles. In any way, humans also become art through our clothing.
