Shaina Mote’s Garden Print Dress (via Moxsie) immediately reminded me of Saelee Oh‘s sweet paintings of animals in the forest. This particular painting is from Oh’s group show, I Know What You’re Thinking, from back in March 2009.

I loved the color combo of this dress by RAASTA, a fashion line out of Madrid. It reminded me of this painting, Pool, by UK-based illustrator, Jack Hudson.

I was inspired this week by these awesome leggings on Pixie Market and this calming screen print by Los Angeles artist, Claire Nereim. Unfortunately I’m not much of a leggings girl, but I love the pattern! The print is part of Claire’s series Drift (which I believe refers to drift wood) and another print in the series is currently for sale here.

In my day-to-day inquiry of visual material on the web, I’m often struck by the many parallels (and likely co-influencing) between art and fashion. It’s important to me to expand the dialogue on art to include fashion and other creative disciplines. So… this is the start of a new series, Fashion + Art which I hope gets you as excited as it gets me!

By the way, fashion-y blog, size too small, has a really cool new series that asks the question, “What would Georgia wear?” Brilliant!
