Whether it’s fabric art, wearable art or high-end fashion … dress artistry presents a wonderful opportunity to connect the human form with creative sculptural forms.

Blending one of the oldest forms of function for human purpose – clothing, with one of the oldest forms of decoration – costume, has allowed dress artistry through to fashion to become so extensively varied. Below I have collected some web snaps of artistic forms of fabric arts or dress artistry. Not deemed as fashion in the commercial sense, these artworks are creative expressions of fabric and human. Sounds complex yet beautiful!
