fashion as art

I went to a lecture at the Getty not long ago (for me that could mean I went there months ago but I don't recall, exactly) and one of the designers who presented was Jasmine Shokrian. A graduate of art school in Chicago, Shokrian is inspired by the moment in which art and fashion meet. Since I think of "art" as a broad term and I believe that all forms of art should be in dialogue with one another I think this is an excellent concept to keep in mind when designing, rather than the drive of pure commercialism.

I think my favorite collection of hers is the Spring/Summer 2008, which she said is based on the "impact scents can have on people."
