Fashion & Art

N.B. This course is taught in Dutch.
In this Fashion & Art course, we dive into the history of fashion and its influence on and by art. Who does not know the colourful Mondrian dresses designed by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965? Or the mini-dresses with hypnotic optical prints inspired by 1960s pop art? The line between fashion and art is not always strict, as the two worlds have been linked for centuries. Designers translate a zeitgeist into their designs and are inspired by works of art. Conversely, clothing and fashion have been an expression of status, wealth, power and reputation for centuries. Lecturer Barry Heinrichs will take you from medieval damsels and knights adorning each other with colours, to the dominant black of the Golden Age and the taste of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. There, we eventually see the two even meld with each other in the likes of Victor & Rolf and Iris van Herpen. How have fashion and art developed over the past centuries, soon you will know it all!
