Connections Between Fashion and Fine Art

At the London Mayfair collection some of the hottest items to purchase were Louis Vuitton bags printed with Old Masters paintings like the Mona Lisa. The bags included artwork by  Jeff Koons, Van Gogh, Rubens, and Titian. It was an obvious example of the fashion world's fascination with fine art. This course will explore historic connections between styles in art and fashion. We'll focus on artists who have influenced fashion design, including Andy Warhol and Bridget Riley.
