Fashion is one of the most important visual phenomena of our age. Ever since the 1960s the borders between fashion and art have become increasingly blurred, and 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 where uniformity reigns supreme, fashion and art provide us with the most stimulating, the most unexpected and the most liberated visual culture in all of history. Verbally and pictorially, Fashion and Imagination tells of the stimulating relationship between fashion and photography, film, visual art, performance art, architecture and literature.
