How to include art in your fashion collection

    Art and fashion have a uniquely symbiotic relationship. Together they expand the realms of creativity and nurture incredible collaborations. Want to include an artwork in your fashion collection? Find out how we can help. 

    In the words of Vogue: "Painters, illustrators and photographers have become important contributors to the fashion industry, their input often adding instant value to a collection.”

    Who have we worked with?

    We are lucky to have worked with some of the most esteemed brands and fashion houses in the industry, enabling iconic creative partnerships and seamless collaborations.
    From Henry Holland and Albert Irvin’s vibrant and colourful S/S 2018 Resort Collection, to uber cool Off White and their use of Alfred Munnings stunning classical painting, we have been there. We also worked with 16 Arlington when they were inspired by Richard Lindner’s unique, exciting artworks (image above).

    Pushing the boundaries of creativity

    At this year’s London Fashion Week 2019 we really enjoyed Anya Hindmarch working with artists’ collective Numen/For Use to create an immersive art installation, The Weave Project. Suspended, climbable tunnels of deep cerulean blue, the installation presented a space where art and fashion were physically intertwined.

    Phoebe English’s A/W 2019 collection, meanwhile, was on display at the Morley Gallery alongside her V&A marionettes; 30 puppets outfitted in miniature versions of her greatest hits, initially featured in the V&A’s Fashion in Motion exhibition.
    Art merged with fashion therefore not only adds instant value but also enriches the realms of creativity. Isn’t it time you made the most of this partnership?
