ANDY – THE ICON

Andy Warhol is one of my greatest inspirations in terms of foresight, individuality and creativity. In today’s increasingly selfie-obsessed world, it would have indeed be interesting to know what Andy would have said about this trend as well as incredible technological advancements in social media, the internet and technology.

In terms of fashion, Warhol once said: “Fashion wasn’t what you wore someplace. It was the whole reason for going.” Over many decades, fashion has been strongly influenced by the Pop master’s work in a remarkable way: from paper A-line “souper” dresses in the ’60s, soup can shaped garments and printed miniskirts by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, dresses shaped like a Campbell’s Soup can by Philip Colbert to a Andy Warhol inspired Diane von Furstenberg 2008 resort collection and creations by Raf Simons for Dior. The following post shows rare photographs of Andy Warhol’s personal life.
