Art, Applied

    Most of the clothing we see and wear each day is only minimally artful, being designed more for purpose than for visual arrest.  But there are times places and situations where such a level of art is given over to the creation of the articles that we place upon us that they become, of themselves art.
    All of us have seen and heard of the increasing number of museum exhibitions which display clothing, in particular, couture, as being art, and it very often is.  But there are so many other places and ways that we give ourselves over to art fully with the things we wear.
    This is not going to be a long, wordy post. these attached images speak what I want to say better than I ever could.  Take a moment from your day, and look at the wildly differing ways we manifest art to be worn on our bodies.
    I cannot fail to be astounded at the endless creativity and imagination of the Human species.
