Art || Motion

Welcome to my humble blog.
I’m not quite sure how to go about this, so bear with me as I fumble along.

I started this blog in hopes of documenting my steps into the fashion industry and all that it entails.

The idea behind my title, and subsequently, the essence of my blog : Art || Motion is to draw a comparison to what I think Fashion is… a  parallel between Art and Motion.

When people think of Fashion, they often think of glamour, luxury, creativity … and of course, vanity. Fashion elicits many reactions; gasps of awe or exclamations of shock…That’s a wonderful part of the industry that I appreciate. Yet despite that , there are some people who would berate Fashion – think little to nothing of it, or even slander it and those who indulge in it.

A fine example of such would be when people comment on how a absurd certain things they see on the run way is. They might ask, in shock, “Who would wear that?!”

And last but not least, the infamous :

The Lady Gaga Meat dress : )

All of the above may conventionally be considered as weird. And to answer the question of who would actually wear these weird garments? Well , save for a selected few people,  no one. Some garments and pieces were made to satisfy a fantasy; often made to satisfy the creative callings and break through the every day mundane.  I think it’s been said very well before by Vivienne Westwood :

It’s just a matter of adjusting the eyes. It’s only perverse because it’s unexpected.” 

Fashion is not just found in clothing.
Fashion is the wavelength of the now.

Sometimes , especially on run ways, it may be taken to the extreme – but generally, designers create based on what they feel is prevalent in the world now. Current world events, nature, history, cultures all inspire and influence fashion; it is organic; it is art. Art in motion.

What you do with art – that is style.

Here’s to my exploration of style.

 Much love, Vi
