I understand that the fashion industry can be extremely superficial. I understand that fashion designers are allowing skeleton-like models to strut their clothes down a runway...and I understand that this gives the connotation that you must be stick thin to be fashionable. I understand that clothing is just fabric, thread, and a whole bunch of time...but, what I also understand is how clothing is an art form.
When you look at clothes as art, it kind of changes the way you feel about them. You experiment with color, you experiment with textures, you experiment with proportions. Your body stands as a blank canvas, and you have the chance to create art every single morning. You create art in the way that you pair items of clothing, and then you create art with the attitude you wear that outfit. Fashion designers are artists because (obviously) they create the clothing in which you put on your back.
FASHION = an Art Form
Now feast on some art:
