Fashion design and interior design have a lot more in common than one might think at first glance. Since September is host to global Fashion Week events from New York to London – we’re taking a look at how these disciplines are two sides of the same creative coin.
1. Fashion Week Takes on Tile
Allison Eden Spotlight, Allison Eden
Allison Eden is one of our favorite vendor-artists! Her signature design style makes for stunning custom murals, but she also carries that same style through home décor and now a fashion line. Allison Eden’s fashion brand launched earlier this year: www.allisonedenfashion.com/
2. The Fabric of Design
This boutique hotel pulls inspiration from traditional textiles, so the tie between fabric and interior design is easy to spot here. Classic fabrics are also the inspiration for our Batik Glass Tile: www.architecturalceramics.com/batik
3. Mind the Gap
Fashion and design are closely linked and inform each other – at least according to Forbes contributing author Blue Carreon. He delves into the film Interior Motives with producer Natalie Shirnian who also sees the connections between interior and fashion design.
4. The Threads that Bind
If there was ever a way to see just how directly fashion and interior design are linked, just take a look at the work of artists who straddle both worlds. Designer Bradley Bayou spent more than a decade designing clothing before delving into room design.
5. From Fashion to Furnishings
Fashion Favorite Roksanda Ilincic Makes a Resplendent Interior Design Debut, Architectural Digest
Another artist fusing fashion and interior design: Roksanda Ilincic. Ilincic’s latest home design is a three-bedroom penthouse in London which draws on the theme of femininity and uses similar colors to those found in her fashion brand.
