Andy Warhol once said, “Fashion was not what you wore some place anymore; it was the whole reason for going.” He has an eye for the fashion trend: the patterns from his art have been widely used in covers, clothing, shoes, perfume bottles, and even movie posters. Andy Warhol turned art from untouchable to amiable. In this workshop, we invite parents and children to make their own fashion with Andy Warhol’s patterns to present a “professional” runway show in the museum in honor of Andy Warhol and Pop art.
Pop art has been an inspiring muse and a visual focus for lots of fashion designers. As the “god father of Pop art,” Andy Warhol is an indispensable influence. Even if you have no previous knowledge about his Pop art patterns or his “fifteen-minute famous” saying, you must have been seen his work somewhere.
As one of the key figures in contemporary art, Andy Warhol was deeply connected with fashion world all his life. He started his career as an illustrator for Harper’s Bazaar and soon became working with lots of influential fashion magazines. His own fashion magazine Interview was where fashion talents make their first debut, and his partners of his studio The Factory all became fashion idols.
“Art is Art. Fashion is Fashion. However, Andy Warhol proved that they can exist together.” Said Karl Lagerfeld in an interview with New York Times. Warhol’s genius lies in his boundary-breaking talents, and thus his creative concepts have been brought in the spotlight over and over again. Numerous brands have created new products based on Warhol’s patterns which broke their best-selling records. These processes complys to what Pop art believes: art is from life and thus art can go back to daily life; art is replicable so that more people can feel it and enjoy it. For this event, fashion designer Zac Zeng is the guest tutor, who will guide the families to undergo their desgin and styling with ready-mades, fabric collage, art graffiti, etc. The participating families will join a boundary-breaking conversation with artists while they go across the museum space in their own desgin. Are you ready to become the “fifteen-minute satr” on the museum runway?
