In my intermediate (3-5) class, we had a guest artist come in to talk about their job. This artist was a visual merchandiser from the company Forever 21. She discussed her roles in the company, fashion, and why this is a career in art.

WHY IS FASHION ART?
The same amount of artistic expression goes into clothes, as a
piece of pottery or a painting.
Art is defined as an aesthetic form. Aesthetic work can be

Fashion is a form of expression.
Aesthetic: appreciation of beauty.
