Art Inspired Fashion: Mary Blair



 Mary Blair is a juggernaut, she deservew her own post. Her name isn't well known but her influence is every where. We all know her work on Cinderella, Peter Pan, and the "It's a Small World Ride". Disney Illustrators have said they looked to get work for inspiration in creating "Tangled". She's no stranger to fashion either.

This ModCloth "Handsome Prints" dress holds Mary's color palette and simple geometric shapes filled with little patterns.




Disney Blogs put together some outfits reminiscent of Mary's work.



Art Teacher/Blogger, Cassie Stephens got crazy creative and took inspiration from Anthropologie's hand painted bags and made her own hand painted bag in "Its a small World Style"



ModCloth can't get enough off Mary Blair's childlike whimsy with this "Knit a Small world" sweatshirt.

This year Redeemed Girl Ministries has teamed up with Scarlet and Gold Shop to encourage and challenge us all to memorize Scripture each week. Marian Jordan Ellis, Redeemed Girl's founder says "the reason for this journey is that we believe revelation causes transformation. As we meditate on His truth we are made new!"


Along with Redeemed Girl, Scarlet and Gold Shop, has created a year long set of 52 scripture cards to use throughout the year and memorize Scripture along with them, while walking us through the context of the verses on the Redeemed Girl You Tube Channel.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, " I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Cinderella At The Ball




This is the dress of Cinderella at the ball in the new live-action Cinderella movie. It's perfect and so romantic. I love the different shades of blue with a few hints of purple glisten as she moves and the glitter winks at everyone watching.

Cinderella








Is anyone else excited for the new version of Cinderella? The previews make it look luscious with all the dresses, magic, and that perfect golden carriage.

I'm even more excited after having spent some time learning about Mary Blair, Cinderella's original artist. Cinderella has really evolved but I think everyone who has worked on her has kept her essence strong and that Mary Blair would be thrilled with the beauty on the new movie.

I painted Cinderella's peasant dress which is beautiful. I love the hint of green throughout the blue, the gathers at the top of the bodice, and the slightest touch of pink flowers on her skirt.

Art Inspired Fashion




As I learned about and from master artiststhis year I started noticing their influence everywhere, especially in clothes.

This spring (2015) Alice & Olivia have made a dress based on Matisse's cut-outs. If I hadn't learned about Matisse, I probably would've thought this dress was weird with it shapes that make a persons body but now I think it's cool and love that people into he world of fashion are just as inspired by him as I.
Tanya Leigh Washington created a sketch for Alice & Olivia




College Fashion did a cool piece on How to dress like Edward Hopper's "Girl At A Sewing Machine"




Van Gogh's "Starry Night" lends lot of inspiration:
Renato Belestra's fall 2012/2013 included this stunner.

ModCloth turned it into a 50s style linene dress

There is a super cool art teacher, Cassie Stephes,who keeps a blog of her art inspirations. She felted a tunics.



Christian Siriano sketched this outfit that reminds me of so'sPicasso geometric shapes
