Róisín Tapponi Fashion Blogger: Fashion Illustrated
Before fashion photography, illustrators were the Sun of the fashion universe, fashion revolving around hand-drawn visual creativity.
With websites/apps such as Instagram and Tumblr in our generation, art in fashion is following the lead of couture – a slowly dying swan - where art in fashion is limited to the V&A and the Fashion Illustration Gallery, to name a few.
If you have a passion for fashion, you are to be judged as a creative person (whether you want to be or not).
I love drawing and art – art has continually been ‘fresh paint on fashion canvases’ since Poiret, sometimes drawings speaking when words can’t.

Is art in fashion better than fashion photography? I have Instagram and am constantly taking photos, the easiest way to capture memories, secluded in a visionary sense through a lens.
Art can make you think more, it’s almost a study, a sketch of a person can make you want to enter their mind, whereas a photo (fashion photography i.e. a model) will just make you wish to look like them, their ‘ozone layer’ of beauty radiating a personal vanity.
I have most likely whisked the words right out of your mind when I say ‘Bath has art in fashion!’ For Bath in Fashion (13th-21st April) there will an exhibition of contemporary art (‘Art in Fashion’), threaded to the main core of modern fashion.
If you turn hipster and denounce all mainstream, there is a quirky exhibition in the Holburne Museum about Shakespearean fashion (‘Painted Pomp’). Or, you could just grab paper and a pencil and draw some fashion designs, just go abstract – illustrate your imagination.
