(But what more could you ask for when your collection is called Coup de Soleil, or “Sunburn?”) And second, by the eye-catching pieces on display.

                          The debate about whether fashion is art is a well-trodden one. The links between the two forms of culture go back at least to Renaissance times when master painters like Jacopo Bellini, Antonio Pisanello and Antonio del Pollaiuolo were not just depicting the fashions of their day in their work but also dreaming up new designs and creating textile patterns and embroidery which were later copied onto actual garments in a curious case of life imitating art.
