Fashion is one of the most important visual phenomena of our time. Since the 1960s the boundaries between fashion and art have become increasingly blurred, while fashion has also become a medium for expressing concepts, ideas and political ideals. The results of the interaction between fashion and art appeal to the imagination. In a world in which uniformity reigns supreme, fashion and art provide the most stimulating, the most unexpected and the most liberating visual culture in history.
Fashion and Imagination recounts in words and images fashion's exciting relationship with photography, film, visual art, performance art, architecture and literature.
