Fashion today may in many ways be seen as contemporary art. They’re both comercial. Designers as well as ‘ordinary’ artists may see their work being sold in the secondary market many times.
Museums nowadays have exclusive exhibitions showing good art craft of design. Alexander McQueen was one of those great artists but he is not alone.
The Metropolitan Museum in New York is now showing fantastic art of fashion. The new exhibition ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between’ is showing the world between fashion/art. I’m viewing the met website and I wish I could be there! It’s contemporary, wild, professional and beautiful. The wow-factor is high!
