✂-Designer's Tip of The Day-Pop Art!!
Warhol was the most closely connected to fashion. The best "Pop Art" fashion, however, was that produced by designers who copied Pop Art's bold iconographic look. This meant it was often called a "Warhol" look. Many designers such as Betsey Johnson, Gianni Versace, and even the French designer Yves Saint Laurent were inspired by the Pop Art movement.
Pop Art is seen in the current fashions of today, however, it's origin is slowly being forgotten. Sleek cocktail dresses, printed with repetitious images, TV cartoon characters or Day-Glo colors are a hommage a' Warhol.
As Andy Warhol once said "If everybody's not a beauty, than nobody is!"
