In March 2013 an article by Meredith Blechman appeared on Artspace.com entitled “Is Fashion Art? Addressing the Ongoing Debate “. Her conclusion at the end of her article was that a fashion design is not to be considered art…….. and this because fashion (read clothing) is functional and art (such as paintings and sculptures) are non-functional. Although she doesn’t consider fashion as a form of art, nevertheless the fashion shows of today are in her opinion, because of the conceptual aspect and the spectacle, to be considered as a performance art. It is my opinion that with this conclusion she heavily deficit some fashion designers (which I prefer to call Fashion Artists).
