Isabella Huffington’s media mogul mother Ariana may make headlines for a living, but last night the 24-year-old artist made a splash of her own with the launch of her first fashion collaboration. As one of six emerging artists featured in a new capsule collection available through Designow, a platform that supports emerging talents, Huffington designed a dress and scarf inspired by one of her art pieces
“I’ve always believed that art should be accessible,” Huffington told us. “These pieces are especially accessible because they’re so versatile. You can wear the scarf so many different ways, like wearing it around your neck or tying it in your hair.” The design itself, a cheerful, abstracted floral pattern printed on white silk, feels reminiscent of Yayoi Kusama and Murakami, both of whom Huffington counts as influences, and who have taken up with fashion brands as part of the wearable art movement.
