What is the Influence, of Art in Fashion?–History is considered, for the Fashion Designer, to have started in the 19th Century, with Frederick Worth, who was the First Fashion Designer, to have his Label’s, Sewn into the Garments, He Fashion Designed. ( In the, Wikipedia, Free Encyclopedia )

There are Two Ideas about What is Art?

  • Considered by Aristotle ( 384 B.C )–Art is a, Mimesis–( Inspiration ), which represents, Appearances, which Give, to a Culture, Pleasure, Through the Use, off, Accuracy and Skill. Which is Through, the Physical, Material, Man Art Created, World. Which is All, Evident in the World, as we See, and Think We know, the World.
  • Whereas Pluto, the ( Greek, Philosopher, 427 B.C ) said that, the Artist is Inspired, by what He Sees, By God or, his Inner Impulses. Which help Him To Express, which is Beyond, what He, Sees and Knows. Which are His Inner feelings, which are Beyond, What is the Truth. Which are Actually the Essence, or Results, of The Ages and History, as we know. ( Information in the, Hutchinson Encyclopedia )

In the Mitler and Raguns, ( 1992 ), says the Principle’s of Art, take into account, Balance, Variety, Harmony, Emphasis, Proportion, Movement and Rhythm. Continuing to Say, that Art is Subjective and Open to Interpretation. There is Not a Definite Limitation, to what can be Called Art. The Art Definition, is up to the Audience, in Every Culture. Who See Art, in Their Unique Way, and Cultures–History.

In concluding this Blog on Fashion Design, we can truly say that, Fashion Design is a Form of Art. Fashion Design Art is Art, because Mitler and Raguns, agree that Art is Subjective, to Open Interpretation. The Art Interpretation, is up to the Individual, and their Culture, to decide what is Fashion Art, or Art. So we can conclude, without Doubt, that Fashion Design, Is A Form Off, Very Important Art, in the Whole of the World and Existence.

Fashion design–is the art of applying design, aesthetics and natural beauty to clothing and its accessories. It is influenced by Cultural and Social attitudes, and has changed over Time and in Place. Fashion Designers work in a number of Different ways, in Designing clothes and accessories. Designers, anticipate changes in Consumer tastes. Designers conduct research on fashion Trends and interpret them for their Audiences. There is a variation in the market, that is determined by the buying and merchandising approach, the Product and the Quality… Budget retailers use Inexpensive fabrics to interpret trends, the High-end retailers, use the Best of the Available fabrics.

Fashion Designers–attempt to design clothes which are Functional as well as aesthetically Nice to look at… Most clothing worn for every Day use, are produced in Conventional styles, and in the unusual garments, sought for Special occasions, like Evening wear or party dresses. Some clothes are made specifically for an individual, in the Haute Couture or Bespoke Tailoring.

Today–most clothing is designed for the Mass Market, especially for, Casual and every day, ready to wear.

Fashion Designers–may work full – time for one fashion house, as in House designers, which own the designs, or they work Alone, or as part of a Team. Freelance designers work for themselves, selling their designs to fashion houses, directly to shops or to The Clothing manufacturers.

Fashion Designers–work in different ways, some Sketch ideas on paper, others Drape fabrics on a dress form. After this stage,  the designer will contact a Professional pattern maker, who makes the finished, working version of the pattern, out of Card or on a Model to make sure it is an Operational outfit…

History-Fashion Design–is considered to have started in the 19th Century, by Charles Frederick Worth, who was the First Designer to have his label sewn into the Garments, that he created. He was the first to tell his Customers what they should wear. Clothing from this period are considered, Costume design. Clothing created after 1858, is considered to be, Fashion Design.

During this period, many Design houses began to Hire Artists to Sketch, Paint and make designs for garments. This Tradition–of Designers, sketching out garment designs, began as The Fashion Design, Economy…

The Types of Fashion–

  1. Haute Couture–until the 1950’s, fashion was designed and manufactured on a made to measure, (Haute Couture basis) French for High Sewing. With each garment being created for a Specific Client. The Look and fit took High priority over the cost of materials and the time it takes to make. Haute Couture makes little direct profit for the Fashion houses, but is very important for prestige and publicity.
  2. Ready to Wear– –  ( Pret-a-porter )clothes which are a cross between Haute Couture and Mass Market. They are made for individual customers, and great care is taken, and made in the choice and cut of the fabric. Clothes are made in Small quantities to guarantee Exclusivity and so are very Expensive. This fashion, is presented by The Fashion Houses, each Season, in The Fashion Week. This occurs twice a year, and is City Wide Based.
  3. Mass Market–currently the Fashion Industry relies on Mass Market. This caters to a wide range of customers, producing Ready to- wear- garments using Trends, set by the Famous names, in fashion. They wait a Season to make sure a Style will catch on, and then produce their own versions. To save time and money, they use Cheaper fabrics, simpler techniques which can all be done by the Sewing machine. The end product is Sold cheaply.
  4. There is a type of design– called– “Kutch” Design, not aesthetically pleasing. Also referred as to wearing, something, that is no longer in Fashion.  (All the above information is, From, the–Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia).

Average Salary Industry: Fashion Design–In Australia, Fashion Designer, Median Salary is from, $44,000 to a Maximum of $112,000…
