I am absolutely sure when the crossover of fashion and art occurs, but I don't believe I can put it into words, at least not words that will make sense. But I definitely know when it does happen because I can see it, I can feel it and it stirs emotion within me.
Sometimes the emotion is just excitement, other times it's 'wow!'
I have a couple of fashion Lines on the go here at the Dominart artist project. My eco-range of recycled and upcycled clothing and accessories came to a standstill at the start of the pandemic and it's on hold ready to be re-launched next year when I can get out and about once again.
But the new shop here at the Dominartist Project has finally found its niche. I am making art wearable through graphics. For me it's all about flat surface design when it comes to our fashion range. I've taken a simple dress (actually three) and put the work of our artists in various patterns and ratios across the fabric. You can now choose your particular favourite artist's work and emblazon them across your torso or rump. The Dominart label is singularly the most exciting thing I've done in the last week!
And while I've been at it I even put out on socks because it's Christmas and I found it amusing.
Above all and beyond all the most important thing about selling on the Internet is creating your niche, and mark my words readers, niche is all I have. I am most proud to present wearable artworks for clients of taste and derring-do at a reasonable budget, where the artists reap the rewards rather than the manufacturer, where the designs are unique and not copied from other artists, where workers are not exploited (as far as I can ascertain) and where the benefits seemingly outweigh the niggling doubt of shallow gains that vanity invokes.
I will be uploading one design a day for the next five years of the project, which is when our funding runs out.
I will be offering discounts for Patreon supporters and will pop up some subscription discounts in the new year.
Here is yesterday's design which uses the painting Babe which was recently on show at the Pellirocco Hotel in Brighton.
And for the accessories you can go to the Redbubble Shop
