When the creative paths of fashion design, haute couture, and art overlap, interesting questions arise on the relationship and border between design and art.

Abstract

When the creative paths of fashion design, haute couture, and art overlap, interesting questions arise on the relationship and border between design and art. Specifically, questions between a project linked to the objective functionality and the free expression of the subjective identity. After proposing a flexible framework of the phenomenon, made by historical suggestions and not a perfect chronological sequence, some examples that have already been largely historicized will be presented, as well as the work of more contemporary fashion designers as Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, and Iris Van Herpen. This paper will investigate this border area, trying to understand whether these intersections can give rise to innovative scenarios for both sectors, focusing on the evolution of the relationship between art and design.
