Art as fashion?
I love Picasso. Like, i really love Picasso. So much so, that i painted Girl Before a Mirror on my bedroom wall when i was 17. At the time my mom warned me that id be sick of it in a couple of weeks but every day when i wake up im still completely in love with it.
It's a little bit like how i dress, plain base, with lots of colour. Another example of art influencing fashion is the Yves Saint Laurent dress inspired by the work of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. I just love how the different coloured fabrics are all pieced together by the grid seams.
