This week Junkyard Arts will be featuring stories from Fashion Week as they relate to the arts. As Tim Gunn mentioned in a recent Project Runway, Fashion is not Clothes. It is a statement, it is design, it is a plan. It demonstrates craftsmanship, vision and creativity that I dare say commands attention the same way a painting commands attention on a crisp, white wall of a gallery. Fashion is a celebration of innovation and creativity that not only speaks for itself, but lets the wearer speak of themselves through it. When done well, fashion is most definitely an art form.
A Favorite: Jean Paul Gaultier!
For the shoes alone, I would do murder. The jackets? Probably maim. Everything? Give up my first born. Gaultier never fails to show the fashion (and art, for that matter) world how it’s really done.
