I’m going to take us back a few months to spotlight an awesome intermingling of art and fashion by Stella McCartney, a pioneer in uniting the two fields both visually in her designs and experientially in her fashion presentations.
For her pre-fall presentation, McCartney teamed up with Grey Area, who commissioned three artists to enrich the atmosphere through live painting. Artists Miguel Fábrega, John Gordon Gauld and Catherine Delphia each worked behind an easel to capture McCartney’s garments on their canvas. Come September, when the clothes hit stores, the designer showed the resultant artworks from the presentation in her flagship store in SoHo alongside the collection that inspired them, with a portion of proceeds benefiting The Drawing Center.
A few editions and originals are still available for purchase on Grey Area’s website.
