When art is incorporated into art of when fashion is influenced by a piece of art I find it extremely inspirational. Art if very rarely the base of fashion influence any more, as world issues and architecture seems to be the base of all ideas. However Bobby Hillson is, in my eyes an inspiration that should be used.
Based on models and trends seen during the time, the quirkiness of Hillsons art work is responsible for inspiring some of Mary Quants mini dress designs, with fun loving girls being the idea behind the clothing. With simple pencil sketches she created a world of beautiful drawings.
I can't help but think that its the simple things that manage to cause a stir that are the true greats.
