long live McQueen

Recently I have started using Polyvore, so far I have 2 sets done, hurray for me! and I thought I’d do one of Alexander McQueen since soon I will be in the presence of his creations at the MET in New York City on his posthumous exhibition titled Savage Beauty. To me, Alexander McQueen was beyond a fashion designer, he was an artist, a genius. Throughout his collections he talked about religion, politics, history, romance and told so many stories, which evoked what we are as humans. He was intense and many people qualify his work as bizarre and disturbing, however who said that art is color rose all the time? I have a humongous blog post coming up on what is art to me, so watch out.

Street Art has an influence in Fashion.

Prada is for sure highly influenced by street art, just notice, doesn’t that banana Spring 2011 “minimal baroque” print resemble to the humongous Blu Mural in Managua, Nicaragua from 2005? I’ll leave you with the thought. There

Street Art has definitely had a big influence in the fashion world over the last few years, with Vogue Paris collaborating with KAWS, a New York-based artist and designer of limited edition toys and clothing, creating a merge between fashion and graffiti, and simultaneously a fabulous editorial spread. The Graffi-Couture editorial is from Vogue Paris 2009 november edition featuring stunning Raquel Zimmerman. Anyhow the most outstanding part of this editorial has to be the KAWS graffitti.

Also my country is not very far behind, street art from artists like INSANO have served as backdrop for an Ad Campaign to a department store named Collins. The colors from the mural clearly serving as an inspiration to the styling of the shoot, with the colour blocking trend right in the bakery oven.

We are hoping for a bright future that would merge street art and fashion!!
