Aware: Art Fashion Identity

On Sunday I visited the Royal Academy to see Aware: Art Fashion Identity an exhibition which looks at how artists and designers use clothing as a mechanism to communicate and reveal elements of our identity. It was interesting to see how differently these designers and artists portray this idea, and how the majority of artist's views differed from my own views.

I thought I'd share with you my favorite works:  Little Rich Girls by Yinka Shonibare and Autumn Winter 2009: Joan by Alexander McQueen.
Another work I love by Yinka Shonibare, which is too good not to share, is Flower Cloud, a life size mannequin made from cast resin and dutch wax printed cotton.
