Some inspiration to start the week…

I’ve always had a fascination with art and its influence on fashion.

Fashion. Gender. Identity. I’m just really into it. Something about the cross over leaves me wanting more. There’s always so much to explore.

The artists who deal with these issues – FASHION, IDENTITY, BODY, GENDER, SEXUALITY – often allow the viewer to derive their own interpretation and meaning which is what I’m most intrigued by. Representations of art and fashion, which are then formed by the viewer, have the ability to create a multitude of meanings.

My imagery inspiration covers a varied spectrum, so I’ve included some below so that you can see what is currently inspiring me and what will hopefully continue to inspire me throughout the year!
