“When you think about it, every closet is like a mini gallery.”

laurenI’ve always been drawn to fashion in a similar way I’ve been drawn to art: if not for its intrinsic beauty, than for its emotional power. The power to create a moment, a feeling, or simply make you stop and think.

High fashion, like collectible art, is one of the most cherished forms of creativity for sale. People invest in clothing the same way they might invest in a painting. Just swap out the canvas with the human body, the art gallery with the runway, et voila!

When you think about it, every closet is like a mini gallery of its own, hung with pieces that form a collection uniquely yours.

So it’s not hard to understand why the realms of art & fashion have always been in a constant state of play. From Salvador Dali’s abstract designs for Elsa Schiaparelli, to Yves Saint Laurent’s Mondrian-inspired collection in the 60’s, to the more recent collaborations/ installations between Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton, the spark between artists & fashion designers is undeniable.

As an art director and a blogger, my goal is to express my own creative vision by merging fashion with another form of art: photography. It’s through this lens that I’m able to articulate my own view of the world. To capture a distinct flash in time. To inspire others. Or, at the very least, to get them to take a minute out of their busy lives to reflect.

At end of the day, we’re all just drops of paint on a canvas anyway.
