Dress for Art: Style and Fashion Tips for Visiting Art Exhibition and Galleries


London is one of the most exciting city in arts, many world renowned artists exhibit their works here. Although there is no strict dress code for visiting art exhibition, people can go in Tshirt and trainers, but we live in the world fashon centre and most creative place like London, I think we should try to step in these beautiful space with representation of our creative mind, making a satorial statement in understanding and respect of these phenomenal art works.

So I started this personal project "Art, Style and Fashion" to experiment my style with hats in art exhibitions.

Style advice: When ever I go out to galleries or to an exhibition, I always research about the art works, space, and anbience, so I can plan my ourfits that won't look out of place, playing the contrast or in harmony with the art works and space, making a statment and expressing the understanding of their art or architecture. With this baseline, combine with my mood of the day, confortability and weather permmition. I normaly choose outfits not too formal, I like block colours, combined with simplicity of the style, with defined silhouette but still comfortable to move and walk for hours, and with disdinct personal signature that make statment, like a bold hat, necklace or shoes, or all of above, haha!

And don't forget, you need to wear the shoes that is stylish and comfortable to walk for long time, i usually wear a geniune leather block mid or low heels shoes, or double decker minimalistic leather trainers.

Visited Antony Gormley's Exhibition in Royal Academy of Arts, his works are visurally stunning and mesmerising, and the connection between human beings and time, space, materials really touched my heart! I felt allinated and embraced, depressed and librated, vulnerable and empowered, so emotions evoked through out the exhibition, just as he said:"we are all vessels of feelings."

In this dark and cold beginning of winter, only Chihuly's vibrant glass sculpture can bring some excitment! Visited his exhibition at Kew Gardens on the last day (always last minute!), and these madnificent sculptures shimmer in the late afternoon sunshine and flame the sky.
