Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion was an opportunity to acknowledge and promote the longstanding relationship between fashion and art, and a celebration of London’s role as a creative capital, a place where artists of all kinds congregate and inspire one another.
The pairs were given a completely open brief to see what would emerge from the dialogue between their respective disciplines. The results encompassed sculpture, video, music and photography.
