  • Yes it is art

    In recent years fashion has been shown in places where art has normally been displayed. Museums now display fashion just as much as art however many people still believe fashion is not art. I question this as what you choose to wear on your body is art, as art is meant to be you expressing yourself and for many choosing what you wear is a form of expressing yourself. Fashion is art that you wear on your body.

    A lot of designers collaborate with artists and incorporate features of art into their work such as Yves Saint Laurent and Piet Mondrian in 1965. Yves Saint Laurent's dress was inspired by artist the Piet Mondrian. It was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s work which mainly consisted of Thick black lines and primary colours. In this case fashion was literally art. Additionally If fashion is not art why would there be so many collaborations?

    However some may argue that that fashion is just clothes and that they don’t mean anything, I disagree with this as fashion can tell you about history, events and what people wore during that time during that time. For example people such as Marie Antoinette in 1775 put peacock feathers in her hair and they came into fashion immediately not just in France but everywhere in Europe which can be seen in dresses of this time.

    Some pieces of fashion look so pretty that it may be considered art such as ballgowns. However some would argue that the purpose of an artist is not to make beautiful things but to just make art which is them expressing themselves and fashion is exactly what it says it is-fashion. They also may argue that fashion has a practical use whereas art does not. However many of the clothes seen going down the catwalk do not have a practical use and many designers create impractical clothes not deliberately trying to make the clothing impractical but to show their creativity which is exactly what artists do in their work. Designers often require the same skills as artists for things like designing the actual clothes and often the patterns in the clothes take as much designing as art does.

    In conclusion fashion is art as art incorporates many things and fashions fits into it. In addition to this designers and artist collaborate creating works that can be considered both art and fashion. People who disagree with this statement may argue that fashion is not art as clothing High street clothing companies tend to make clothes for the soul purpose of making money whereas artists tend to express themselves through their work unlike High street companies which make clothes that they think will be popular. I agree that some companies do this but majority don’t. Although fashion cannot be displayed in a frame it can tell you many things about what life was like in this period- much like art does. I believe that fashion is simply art that people wear on their bodies

  • When you say Fashion, I hear Art!

    Why fashion is art is because if you take two pieces of art that are of the exact some thing they are not exactly alike which is like fashion because if you gave two kids the exact same outfit they would make it their one by adding a hair band, or a nick-lice, by adding a ring, a bracelet, and by maybe one kid well tulk his shirt under his/her pants.

  • Yes, what we wear can be artistic.

    Art is any self expression that is consciously made and displayed. What a person wears on his or her body can be seen as art if it is meant to express inner self and outer flair. If whatever a person chooses to call art on the wall is art, then whatever a person chooses to call art that he or she wears is art, too.

  • Yes, fashion is art.

    Fashion is definitely art. Art is how people express themselves and how they are feeling. Those who design the cloths are making art out of cloth and creating something wonderful that people can also wear. The way a person dresses themselves or does their make up is also art. They are expressing something.

  • Yes, it possesses the same qualities.

    Although we don't look at fashion in a frame on the wall or in a museum (though sometimes it is in a museum), fashion accomplishes many of the same things as art: self expression, a reflection of our culture; creative design. For these reasons, fashion is art; art isn't just what hangs in a museum, it is all around us.

  • I believe so!

    Fashion is how many people express their individuality. Designers believe that their clothes and accessory are an extension of them selves. All artist of every kind enjoy and love what they do. Fashion helps women to become more of an individual in an marriage. There is all ways going to be a pessimist who only believes are paintings are art, but art is very personal expression!

  • It is wearable art.

    The use of fashion to express individuality is art. If one looks at some of the outfits worn by models, they could see that the clothing is a way for the designer to express themselves, which is all art really is. It doesn't have to be great in the eyes of everyone, as art always has some form of criticism.

  • No fashion is not art

    Print and color and design in nature is called camouflage 2nd take shoes a podiatrist make up dermatologist you can't take a 9 year doctor degree cut it down to a 6 month class and call it art someone will call you wrong a doctor. You'd have to get so many Dr degrees you'd be in school till you where dead its not possible. You can't get a doctors degree or a PhD in art. So no fashion is not art
