Wednesday’s are now for one of my favorite features called Art on the Runway which originated on Minnie Muse last year and has since begun calling W Magazine Online home! I love spotting art references in the new runway collections each season. In honor of the fall/winter 2014 London shows here are some of my favorite unpublished comparisons from last fall. Just wrapping up work on the New York collections… Exciting things to come!
