Art and Fashion

Last Thursday I attended the San Francisco State University graduation fashion show, Provoke. The design students all showed their artistic creativity and each displayed 5 looks from their collections. Attending these fashion shows is a fun way to support the arts and gives the opportunity to see new, potential designers first pieces of work.
Keeping with the theme of the arts, I wore a cream shift dress with splashes of primary color. I find fashion inspiration in everything from food to weather, art to travels, and everything in between. Inspiration for this outfit came from the works of Piet Mondrian’s paintings and Celine’s S/S 14 collection. I absolutely love the modern color combinations used by Piet Mondrian and how well it combined with the structured silhouettes of Celine. Now,  I’m not one to wear bright colors very often, but when I do, I tend to wear primary colors paired with lots of neutrals to tone down excess loudness. This dress had the perfect balance of color and cream and the loose fit of the mod silhouette was perfect for the 80° weather we were experiencing in San Francisco.
As for accessories, I kept things very simple with black and gold. Leather strappy heels, a structured lady’s bag, a bold bangle and earrings were more than enough to pull this outfit together without getting too costume-y.
Tell me, what forms of art inspire your fashion sense? Leave a comment below.
