Fashion Houses and Art

It is not a secret that there is a relation between fashion and art. What is becoming a dominant trend is the obvious unions of great fashion houses with contemporary artists.

In collaborations, as seen when fashion designer Marc Jacobs assumed creative direction of Louis Vuitton, hiring Takashi Murakami to design the prints for the 2005 Spring/Summer collection. An recent collaboration with painter Richard Prince for this season 2008 collection

We have also seen Michael Elmgreen and Ingmar Dragset who combine fashion and installation art, with the conception of Prada Marfa. They constructed a Prada store front in the middle of nowhere (in Marfa Texas).
Going nowhere to see Artist talk about fashion, versus the most recent phenomenon, Art going everywhere sponsored by Fashion. Major fashion houses like Chanel and Hermes are creating artpods, enclosed traveling exhibitions touring the world to promote art.
