Inspiration: Fashion

Designers, fine artists and photographers have always had close ties with the fashion industry and have long been employed to help showcase the latest trends and designs. With an abundance of sumptuous fabrics, striking colours and gorgeous models, it’s little wonder that the fashion industry is also a source of inspiration for non-editorial or creative works. RedBubble is full of stunning examples of artworks inspired by fashion:
