Art to Wear by Julie Schafler Dale

These wonderful images are extracted from the coffee table book “Art to Wear” which was published in 1986, and written by Julie Schafler Dale, an instrumental supporter of the art wear scene.

After years of studying traditional art, Julie explains in the preface, she finally admitted her true passion was in costume and began exploring pieces that bridged the gap between fine art and wearable clothing. In 1973, she opened her Artisan’s Gallery to showcase these exquisite garments carrying pieces that ranged from antique costume to limited edition wearables.

Photos from this book brings an ’80s glossy and minimal fashion spread approach to pieces of an older era which is refreshing to see for a reader who likes to analyze the details of the pieces.
