Design: Art Inspired Fashion

Design: Art Inspired FashionThe recent turbulence in politics lately has me pining for all things late 60s. As opposed to the buttoned-up early 60s (think: Mad Men), social rules were a-changin’.

It seemed back then, people of the civil rights and anti-war movement were creative dreamers. They organized, they had big ideas, they were free-thinkers. A new reverence for art and song was born, along with new styles of art and music. In general, people were tired of war and oppression and just wanted some peace and love.

Sadly, I would miss this decade – as well as the 70s – but it’s affects and inspiration are not lost on me. As someone who values peace and equality, no one personifies this historic time better than singer/songwriter Bob Dylan. So, for my monthly fashion collage, I’m using this groovy, stylized poster as my inspiration.

This look was created with styles from J. Crew, Net-A-Porter, Anthropologie and Piperlime – but is just begging to be re-created from thrift store and vintage finds.

Fashion credits: shoes are by Report found on, skirt is Maison Martin Margiela found on, silk blouse from J. Crew, bag is by Miu Miu found on Jacket, ring and necklace are all from Anthropologie.
