The only difference between fashion and art, is that fashion is an art movement....

And the fact is, even art is subject to fashion!

Historically, fashion has rarely been elevated to the same stature as painting, music, sculpture or architecture. But fashion is one of the purest expressions of art because it is art lived on a daily basis. ... Fashion is a manifestation of human art and communication.
