Art and Fashion - Art Socirty Lectures

Art and Fashion

Art and Fashion: Collaborations from Ela Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali to today.

Lecturer: Frances Ross BA Art, Design and Film, MA Visual Culture


Art and Fashion are different disciplines but in creative collaborations they can make exciting bed-fellows.

This lecture will explore iconic inspirations and collaborations of artists and fashion designers from Schiaparelli’s evening dress which utilised Dali’s famous lobster symbol and was worn by the Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson in 1937, to YSL inspiration of Mondrian’s painting for his 1960s dress.

Other artists such as Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst will be examined in an art and fashion context.
