Art and Fashion

Fashion designer sketches to me are a form of art. The wall installation done by AlOthman Boutique is simply genius. They have covered one huge wall in their store with original artwork and designer sketches, mostly signed and dedicated to AlOthman. The wall looks amazing. I'm sure it's such a  rewarding experience for everyone from the fashion designer who shared the sketch, to the boutique owner who smartly decorated the store, and to the normal shopper who wants a welcoming retail distraction and who wants to see something different, especially in a country where visual merchandising and store interior have only picked up recently. 

There were around 36 sketches by the biggest names in fashion history like Carolina Herrera, Erdem, Naeem Khan, Elie Saab, Jason Wu and more. Here's a quick look of some of my favorite sketches.
