The love affair between the fasion world and artists has grown to a fever pitch of late. Usually it is fashion trying to borrow some heat from Contemporary art.

US affordable luxury designer Tory Burch unveiled spring/summer 2015 creations in New York Tuesday inspired by the spirit of French painter and Picasso mistress Francoise Gilot.
“I love the idea of her being such a strong woman,” Burch told AFP when asked why Gilot had been such an inspiration. “She was also an incredible artist in her own right,” Burch said, adding she has always loved Picasso’s ceramics.
