Pop Art


Here is the third style trend we chose to discuss during our live work shop.
Pop Art, which is one of my personal favorites.
Pop Art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. It presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising, news, etc.
Let’s admit the bond between fashion and art is a strong one! This partnership goes back to the first half of the 20th century when Salvador Dali had a Lobster painted on an Elsa Shiapparelli dress. Ever since that time art and fashion have had a strong fruitful relationship!
In he 1960s there weren’t many creative people around which made designers, musicians and artists more likely to work together and cooperate as they were setting the trends and he cultures. During that period fashion designers clearly starting using pop art in their clothing.
Not only did fashion designers use pop art in their designs but artists also made portraits of famous designers as for example Andy Warhol who painted Yves Saint Laurent in 1974.
Pop art is a form of art that uses popular objects or scenes from everyday life.
Bright colors and bold graphics are features that are popular in fashion this season.
