Crochet Quote: Art to Wear

Today’s crochet quote comes from the introduction to Art to Wear, the book I showcased earlier today on the site that’s all about the wearable art movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It’s by Julie Schafler Dale.

“A form of body adornment that celebrates personal expression, art to wear is as richly varied and unpredictable as the individuals who create it. Bt its very nature, the art to wear movement defies definition. The pieces conform to no established set of aesthetic criteria. They may be baroque or minimalist, rigid as a suit of armor or fluid as a cascade of water, visually voluptuous or graphically abrasive. But they are each distinguished by an intensity of personal content.”

Fashion is a form of self-expression and wearable art takes that to a whole new level. What is the most creative piece of fashion that you own?
