For at least two centuries, fashion and art have maintained a competitive love-hate relationship. Both fashion and art construct imaginary worlds, and use a language of style to invigorate beliefs, perceptions and ideas. Until now the crossovers of fashion and art have received only scattered treatment and suffered from a dearth of theorization. As an attempt to theorize the area, this collection of new and updated essays is the most well-rounded and authoritative to date. Some of the world's foremost scholars in the field are assembled here to explore the art-fashion nexus in numerous ways: from aesthetics and performance to masquerade and media. Original and inspiring, this book will not only secure 'art-fashion' as a discrete area of study, but also suggest new critical pathways for exploring their continuing cross-pollination. Fashion and Art is essential reading for students and scholars of fashion, art history and theory, cultural studies and related fields.

Long overdue is this look at a centuries-old love affair: the close relationship between art and fashion. From the Renaissance, when painters first sought to accurately capture the form, color, and texture of clothing, to today, when models strut down the runway in virtual works of art, the influence has flowed both ways. Illustrated throughout with paintings, designer sketches, and fashion plates, this groundbreaking study includes a chronology of art movements and appendices of fashion designers and fashion houses. It will provide a wealth of eye-opening insights to those who visit showrooms and galleries, and a treasury of creative inspiration for workers in studios and ateliers.

Relatively few garments survive from before the eighteenth century, and the history of costume in the preceding centuries must therefore rely to a great extent on literary and visual evidence. This book, the first of its kind, examines Stuart England through the mirror of dress. It argues that both artistic and literary sources can be read and decoded for important information on dress and the way it was perceived in a period of immense political, social, and cultural change. Focusing on the rich visual culture of the seventeenth century, including portraits, engravings, fashion plates, and sculpture, and on literary sources--poetry, drama, essays, sermons--the distinguished historian of dress Aileen Ribeiro creates a fascinating account of Stuart dress and how it both reflected and influenced society. Supported by a wealth of illustrative images, she explores such varied themes as court costumes, the masque, the ways in which political and religious ideologies could be expressed in dress, and the importance of London as a fashion center. This beautiful book is an indispensable and authoritative account of what people wore and how it related to Stuart England’s cultural climate.

Art + Fashion is as exciting and elegant as the creative partnerships it celebrates. In this abridged reading edition, readers will enjoy the book's sparkling and informative text in its entirety, plus a single stunning representative photo of each of the 25 collaborative projects profiled. Spanning numerous eras, men and women's fashion, and a wide range of art mediums, these collaborations reveal the astonishing work that results when luminaries from the art world (such as Pollock, Haring, and Hirst) come together with icons of the fashion world (including Saint Laurent, Westwood, McQueen). From 20th-century legends such as Elsa Schiaperelli and her famous lobster dress painted by Salvador DalĂ­ to 21st-century trailblazers such as Cindy Sherman and her self-portraits in vintage Chanel, these electric and provocative pairings brim with the energy and possibility of powerful forces uniting.
