I’ve always had a love for creating. While some use art (painting, photography, and building) as a creative outlet, that wasn’t what did it for me. That was, until I realized fashion is art too!
The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
Isn’t that exactly what picking out the perfect outfit is? Fashion has always been a way of applying skill and imagination in visual form! Once this idea sunk in, I was hooked!
Whenever I shop for a new item of clothing, or just simply pick out my outfit for the next day I envision how it would look paired with another item. In comparison, with artists, I am sure most (I say most, because we have all seen that painting where you just think, “Wtf is that?”) of them envision what they are about to create before they create it; and that is literally what I do everyday when I put together an outfit!
Since I’m basically an artist – in my twisted way of looking at it.
