Fashion and Art have been linked since the early twentieth century, leading to innovations in what designers create and hope will be “must-haves.” In the history of fashion and haute couture, some of the most ingenious garments have been linked to Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art, and Graffiti. This lecture will explore the dress styles that have surprising parallels to trends in popular culture, some well-received, some shunned, and some shocking. We will discuss many ingenious, extravagant, and sometimes humorous styles and learn what influenced the designers. Dr. Lawrence is an Art Historian and painter. She has worked as a Fashion Designer with her own company in New York. This event is also available virtually.
