The art of fashion

I must say, 'The Skinny' Forever 21's blog is so amazing, I love reading every post, and they don't only post about Forever 21 things, they post about everything to do with fashion! It's a great combination of high fashion and more affordable items. I was going through old posts of their's and found this amazing one of runway pieces that are inspired/look exactly like famous works of art! I thought I'd share them;

I loved this because Klimt is one of my favorites

I hope you enjoyed those as much as i did!
Sorry no outfit post today, I've been busy running errands and packing because I go back to school tomorrow! I'm so excited to be back in my tiny room with my best friend, and with my boyfriend, and taking fashion classes! I just got my information for the classes; I'm taking the history of fashion (excited), marketing of fashion (more excited) and a sewing class (going to mood - very excited). I'm taking boring classes too but these should spice up my life a bit! As well as being apart of my school's fashion club again! I should be busy, but in the most exciting way! I'll hopefully post an outfit tomorrow after I unpack!

That is such an amazing idea! Thanks for sharing.

Also, where do you go to fashion school? Awesome.

Erica Leigh said...

i love the idea of art as inspiration for fashion because fashion is also art in itself!

you're taking awesome classes (i took history of fashion too! my professor was boring, but i really enjoyed looking at all the pictures and learning about fashion throughout time. you'll like it i'm sure).

hope your school's fashion club is fun! :)

That's ever so cool - apart from the fact that it'd be nice to see an artist there who isn't massively mainstream, naughty F21! In fact, I may develop this idea with some less well-known artists on my blog one day in the future. There's a fashion club in your school? I WANT TO GO THERE.

Fashion designers love Klimt; if there's one artist they all come back to again and again, that is the one.
