Fashion Loves Art Loves Fashion – Melbourne

Today Tash and I took a little trip into Richmond and after treating ourselves with a hazelnut meringue muffin from Pillar of Salt (yum yum) we ventured into the Sophie Gannon Gallery to to take a sneak peak at the Fashion Loves Art Loves Fashion Exhibition as part of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program.

Fashion Loves Art  Loves Fashion is a collection of gems curated from the creative coupling occuring between art and fashion in Australia. Featuring collaborations from: John Nicholson and Josh Goot, Scanlan and Theodore and Nan Goldin, Rittenhouse and Lucas Grogan, Rittenhouse and Gemma Smith, Romance was Born and Del Kathryn Barton.

The pieces that stood out for me were from Romance was Born who collaborated with Archibald prize winner Del Kathryn Barton in 2008. The textures and work put into each piece were incredible, especially a large quilt which had many hard hours put into it.  We were also suckers for the Josh Goot and John Nicholson perspex heels which were actually worn on the runway at RAFW last year.

The exhibition’s last day is Saturday 17th March so if you are in the area it’s definitely worth a look otherwise enjoy some of our pictures below.

    It is refreshing to look at fashion as art (rightfully so), instead of a commodity or a means of being desirable/enviable. It is an appreciation of an idea, the way the colours, fabric and cut make us feel. An appreciation of the labor it took to construct the garment.

    Wow I didn’t like any of those except the Ken Done Something Else picture and dress, and the cultural dress. I thought the quilt looked interesting but then saw the close up.
