Fashion + Art Collusion

Jonathan Saunders + Jess Flood-Paddock

It’s the last chance to catch the V&A’s Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion, finishing this Sunday.  The exhibition promotes the longstanding relationship between fashion and art, while celebrating London’s role as a creative capital.

Leading British fashion designers and visual artists have collaborated for a series of works commissioned as part of the London 2012 Festival.  The featured artists were put in to pairs and given a completely open brief to see what would emerge from the dialogue between their respective disciplines.  The results encompass sculpture, video, music and photography, and are on show for the 12-week nationwide celebration.

The project was conceived by the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, a charity which aims to foster collaboration between the world of fashion and the visual arts, opera, dance, theatre and film.  You can watch a short film about the ideas behind the project here.
