Can you get more artsy and urbane than a room completely clothed in canvas? Well, Jill Stuart’s A/W 2008 ad campaign, staring model Toni Garrn, made a sophisticated attempt with its vigorous nod to the “blending of art and fashion cliche.

This campaign’s fabulousness however, does not lie solely in the fact that the set was constructed from an artistic symbol, but that the medium was fully functional.

Stuart’s page from Jackson Pollock’s book was pure genius. It was a surprise her elegant designs were not soaked into the noise of the spilled paints and thoughtful sporadic brush strokes.

The Joan of Arc inspired collection laid across the Jackson Pollock backdrop and drip art furniture was more than we could ask for. A consistent theme was evident: strength.

Whether it was Pollock’s authoritative impact on American modern art or the power of Joan of Arc’s enterprise, the power of individualism was potent (and the clothes were amazing too!) Her AW08 collection is filled to the brim with strong symbols of femininity. Powerful hooded knits, lush velvets and battle ready boots that you would lay your life down for.
