IS FASHION AN ART?

There are differing views.  

There are designers who orchestrate the work of their hands to be a fashion statement,including Yves Saint Laurent.

There are others who just enjoy the art of sewing and making a beautiful sewing for the wearer, such as Balenciaga.

Some people call fashion a decorative or an applied art.


GERTRUDE USES FABRIC AND INSPIRATIONS TO SEW BY MACHINE AND HAND-FINISH BEAUTIFUL PIECES OF COSTUMES.


She sees her sewing as an artistic expression with practical purpose that will give the wearer energy and encourages dialogue with onlookers. 

In short, Gertrude works varies from minimalist African aesthetic to gorgeous attires  that will definitively inspire human communication.
