FASHION IS ART

 Creative Fashion Cloth Faces by New York based photographer Bela Borsodi for the fashion shop Yalook.





Though Monsieur Gaultier would disagree, Fashion IS Art! "Fashion is even more art than art is." (Andy Warhol) 
You know that certain feeling when your phantasy is playing a trick on you? Well, that's what happens to me all the time (here, here, here and here!) actually. Sometimes you see the weirdest things while being creative and that's what I call art. Whether you're at the supermarket or enjoying the wild nature, open yourself to your environment and let your imagination run free. Every piece of clothing has its own story, it's up to you to create the character and give a life.

"Fashion is one of the most beautiful forms of art we have. It's a form of art that every person gets to possess and create for themselves." 
Jim James

  1. "Fashion is one of the most beautiful forms of art we have." A-MEN.


    These are wonderful pieces of Art you've shared with us, Ira, and I vehemently agree with the fact that Fashion is Art. These two terms are near synonymous and I hold them both at such a high regard. It's also one of the reasons why I absolutely love Journal of Style -- you combine fashion and art so seamlessly into one, it's inspiring.


    Thank you for sharing, and happy hump day! <3

    These pictures are at first so confusing and therefore so incredible.
    The most wonderful thing about fashion is that everyone can create it's own style. That's what real art is about.

    I've seen something similar at a fashion exhibition in Rome. The idea is very cute and the clothing looks like art for sure.

  14. This is great, such a clever and creative use of garments! I always get ticked off if someone feels the need to impose his/her view on what is art and what's not. If something speaks to you, if an object can touch you in any way, why can't that be art, too?! I think art is defined by everyone of us, not by someone who needs to be elitist about it. So I totally agree with your words here! Thanks for sharing :-)

    I think fashion is a great way to be creative and artistic, even if like me, you weren't blessed with any skill in the art department! (You could argue I don't have any skill in the fashion department either, but hey it's only clothes, you can't go too wrong!)

    Also, yes, fashion is completely art. In the words of the Devil Wear's Prada's Nigel when speaking of fashion designers - "what they created was greater than art because you live your life in it."

  61. Omg, these images blew my mind! I wouldn't have never come up with such a simple yet extremely creative concept like this one. I agree 100%, fashion IS art! And trying to explain that to people is probably one of the biggest challenges I face when I say that fashion is my passion out loud. It's really hard to erase the prejudices around this industry and not everyone sees the art behind certain items. Thanks for your contribution, dear! <3

    Love how smart and clever you're, my dear! You ALWAYS get my intention and understand the message behind. I think fashion can be so much more than a piece of clothing. It's not about a certain label it's about the art to wear it, to feel it and to style. I'm so happy we share the same opinion!! Thank YOU May for your support and understanding! <3
