Is fashion art? Across Art and Fashion is a show at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence that analyses the forms of dialogue between the two: the reciprocal inspirations, overlaps and collaborative efforts. It follows the conversation from the Pre-Raphaelites to Futurism, and from Surrealism to Radical Fashion. The exhibition focusses mainly on the work of Salvatore Ferragamo, who was fascinated and inspired by the avant-garde movements of the 20th century and the advent of the culture of celebrity. The exhibition runs until April 7.
