In todays Introduction to Fashion Design class with the NC group we discussed the link between fashion and art, and I presented the work of Lucy Orta an international contemporary visual artist. Her work is both innovative and inspirational. Through a body of work that she has built up over a number of years she explores ideas surrounding mobility, clothing and architecture, investigating social factors such as communication and identity. She is Professor of Art, Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion.
