Moods on the Ouse: Lewes Artwave 2017

  ‘Where Fashion meets Art’ is a contemporary slant on how nature inspires and shapes art in a myriad of sublime forms.

Hosted in Susie Monnington’s secret hideaway studio, this collaboration melds all that is best from the sussex countryside with the height of fashion through the form of bespoke millinery.

The juxtaposition of classical natural imagery and three dimensional fashion design is innovative and intriguing. The striking silhouettes of the Lomax & Skinner designed hats (art forms in themselves) against Susie’s romantic water lily paintings adds an exciting dimension that wouldn’t be out of place in a London gallery or on the catwalks of Milan.

This fresh take on exhibiting art leaves one breathless. If you see only one show this season, see this.
