Fashion now needs the artists. Designer Marc Jacobs was supremely successful in rebranding older luxury goods through art-fashion collaborations that include Jürgen Teller, Cindy Sherman and Takashi Murakami. Tracey Emin worked with Longchamp, Alexander McQueen with Damien Hirst. Spectacular effects from fashion and film became the ‘new normal’ in the museum. Manolo Blahnik shoes are shown in the Wallace Collection, Victoria Beckham dresses hang next to Old Master paintings. Events such as London ‘Masterpiece’ blur art, fashion and lifestyle. Do contemporary audiences even distinguish between formats such as art and fashion? What is the role of art/fashion pairings in a more subdued post-COVID age?
Attention fashionistas – we would love to see your catwalk-ready looks at the final lecture. A fun way to close the series for anyone who feels like dressing up.
