Fashion is Art

"There's an emotional element to anything you make" -Oscar de la Renta 
Growing up it was never necessarily "cool" to be known as the girl that sews. When I was younger I never felt passionately about fashion or clothing. It wasn't until I started designing my own pieces that I saw the art behind it. Fashion is art, painting is art, and music is art. There are feelings and thoughts and people who inspire each piece, and behind each piece of art is someone who took the time to create it. To dream it up and bring it to life and either save it for themselves or to choose to share it with the world. Whether you feel passionate about drums or watercolors or designing dresses...let's not discriminate the way anyone else creates art. Let's celebrate art for what it is and appreciate everyone's way of creating it.

Dress: Made by me; Jacket: Juicy Couture; Belt: J.Crew (borrowed from Rachel), Shoes: J.Crew; Earrings: Charming Charlie ($3 holla!)

Oh and P.S..... YOU are art too and made by the PERFECT designer. 


  1. Oh MY GOSH. Please make me a dress like that! You are so talented, Hannah :)

    I agree 100%. I didn't realize how artistic fashionistas have to be till I started getting more interested in it a couple of years ago. Now fashion is one of my main creative outlets :)

    1. Actually, I just showed this post to my mom and she was really impressed by your dress, and wants to know (seriously) if you would consider making her one. My older brother is getting married in early June and she's trying to find a dress to wear to it. If you're interested in that, my email is hannah941718(at)gmail(dot)com and hers is penny.l.barta(at)gmail(dot)com.

      Have a lovely day! :D

    2. Oh my goodness that is so sweet and so flattering! Unfortunately I'm not selling these dresses yet. :( But tell your mom thank you!

  2. Oh. My. Gosh. Hannah. This has got to be one of my favorite posts so far.
    1. I have never been extremely artsy or musical, but sewing has definately been my art. I love to create with fabric and thread, and, no, it's not cool, but WHO CARES! Thank you!
    2. I am dying over this dress. The color (one of my faves). The ruffles (I love circular ruffles). The everything! :D Have. To. Make. A. Pretty. Dress. Now!
    Funny thing, I have at least 3 different fabrics of this color that I've been planning to use. I'm so inspired, girl! (as if you couldn't tell already lol)

    1. I'm so glad you're inspired!!!! You are definitely artsy if you sew! Oooh I can't wait to see what you create!

    2. I just need to start a blog so I can show you...or I could just email you the pics. ;)
