Is fashion art? What is actually art? This is a question we can definitely ask ourselves in the 21st century. The last hundred years completely changed our understanding of it. An artist can take any object and tell everyone – it’s a piece of art, like Marcel Duchamp with “Fountain” or even more recent Maurizio Cattelan with a banana. Now, an artist doesn’t have to take part in the creation of an artwork – he can tell his idea to his artisans and make sure, they implement it, as he imagined – like Jeff Koons.
Let’s get back to fashion. So why do I think fashion is art and everyone is actually an artist? Every day we pick the clothes we wear and mostly it’s a unique set of things. Maybe not unique for you, but comparing to all the other people on the planet, how high is the probability, that another person on the other side of this planet, will pick the exact same set of things? Zero.
We are all unique and we all like different styles, we can afford different brands and inside these brands collections, we would favor different cuts.
Buying your clothes from smaller labels with interesting and special designs make your everyday style more unique. So the next time you find yourself on an inspirational journey through the world of online shopping, think of fashion as you would think of art. And try something new.
