FASHION ART INSTITUTE
BY MANUEL FERNÁNDEZ
Fashion Art by Manuel Fernandez was born in 1998 with the desire to offer to the most outstanding artists of the international pictorial panorama, a new and exceptional support where to express their work: a dress-canvas. Each artist acts by intervening on a different dress, in white, where he/she expresses his/her work and, consequently, creates a unique work.
Inspired by the dances of Australia and New Zealand dances of primitive origin with its system of social organization by tribes. Their dances are ceremonial dances linked to myths where they ask for food, which is scarce due to the adverse arid conditions. There are festive dances characterized by lively movements, jumping, kicking and “chancleteo”, which are danced at social events such as marriages, funerals and commemorative events.
