DSC_017510Fashionplay’s intention with Fashionshop is to make “fashion art” accessible to the general public and to pose the question: what is saleable fashion with regard to function and materiality? What happens when art objects are placed within the context of saleability? Is it easier for viewers to be receptive to such objects when they are presented in the way in which we are used to encountering fashion? And, if they do gain more purchase appeal, do they then lose their artistic identity?
