On Project Runway this week, Zac Posen explained the need for fashion to succeed commercially, adding that Fashion is not a Fine Art because it must be commercial. Then, I saw this dress from Shiki working in collaboration with the artist Vinn Wong and I have to ask, how is this not Fine Art?
This fabric is as alive with passion and dynamic energy as any Jackson Pollack. Does it become lesser because I can wear it? Does painting on silk rather than canvas devalue that artistry?
I added the Axel jacket from Pink Outfitters with the shift dress in case it got chilly.
My jewelry and hairstyle both came from Collabor88 this month. The hair is from D!va and has optional daisies with a touch script. It’s so adorable, I know I will wear it again with the flower. The jewelry is from Yummy. There’s a black and white set and a primary colors set.
The shoes are the newest from MiaMai and are simply stunning! The come in glitter and flax textures. I love the weave of the flax. Flax makes terribly itchy clothing, but work great on shoes.
The skin is the brand new Shelby from Adam n Eve.
