Typically art types take the view of an upturned nose and dismissive flick of the wrist when asked about the influence of art in fashion, or whether fashion itself is a legitimate artform.
And although it doesn't settle this most polarising of creative debates, a new Instagram page is shining a light on the argument by dropping supermodels into classical masterpieces by the likes of Matisse and Manet.
@isartinfashion is run by Maria Sheila Miani, an Irish Social Media Strategist & Digital Artist, living in Italy.
The page's motto? 'To pretend fashion is art.'
We, for one, love it.More
