Art Defines Fashion

Art.  Before fashion this is my first love.  I'm all for the great shoes, fancy bags and a ridiculous amount of clothes; but I'd trade it all for a pair of comfy tracky-dacks (aussie for tracksuit) a paintbrush, quiet surroundings and a canvas.

Since returning to the mother-land after too long abroad I forget just how beautiful this place is.  The pouring rain, humidity, dense tropical rainforest - and when I'm not spending time staring wistfully into the sea or mountain ranges I'm on my computer trawling through 1000's of pictures of beautiful things. 

What I have noticed is how much fashion is an artistic sentiment.  I guess that's what makes fashion unique - we wear our art in our own particular style according to our mood, feelings and taste.

Which leads me to the high-fashion debate - is it worth the price you pay for a pair of Jimmy Choo's or that Chanel clutch that will be totally out of style next season?  Now lets think in terms of art - is Vincent van Gogh's 'Vase with Fifteen sunflowers' worth $77.3 million?

Some say yes; others say no.

So - my humble opinion - pay what you like... .50c from the local op shop bargain bin; or $100's of dollars from well know brands - just don't always follow the trend - remember the artist inside yourself.  Just don't go all Jackson Pollock on us.

For the Love of Vintage
