FASHION AS ART’
Passion for Fashion Auction, March 17th 2011
Fashion and art are often inextricably linked. Chanel designed for Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes in the 1920s, Schiaparelli collaborated with Salvador Dali in the 1930s. During the 20th century great designers have been influenced by great art and vice versa. One of the most desirable, most iconic fashion/art related garments ever to be made is the Yves Saint Laurent 1965 `Mondrian Collection’ gown. To find a couture original is rare; to find one in silk more rare still, so we are delighted to that such an important piece will be included in our fine Passion for Fashion auction on March 17th in La Galleria Pall Mall.
