Fiber & mixed media artist Leisa Rich discusses how she transitioned from fiber artist to fashion designer in the 1980s, then to a professional career as a fiber/mixed media artist in the ’90s, which continues to the present. Her passion for fashion continues in her art practice today in the form of wearable art pieces, which she calls “body sculptures.”
Dong Kyu Kim explores how the fashion and art markets have embraced and merged since the Louis Vuitton and Supreme collaboration in 2017. Currently a Fashion Design Director at First Row and a practicing textile artist, he brings valuable insight into the current and future intersections of art, fashion, and design.
