Andy Warhol once said: "I'd rather buy a dress and put it up on the wall, than put up a painting, wouldn't you?" He like many of the most noted artists of modern time including Salvador Dali and Piete Mondrian contributed to the world of fashion. And the most recent famed artist to join this prestigious list is our own Ronnie Wood./td>
A year ago Liberty & Co, the legendary luxury clothier of London, approached Ronnie with the offer of his own line of fashion, to be designed with creative director Tamara Salman . According to Liberty, the offer came from "A keen admiration for each others' work and common tendency to rock the boundaries."
"I wanted to work with Liberty of London because of the great tradition that Liberty has for artistic collaborations going back to the very early days when Liberty first opened," says Wood, whose edgy painted designs have been translated into a full line of jersey batwing and racer-back dresses, cashmere scarves and graffiti-style T-shirts.
"When Tamara asked me, I was like, 'Yeah, let's get rocking!'" Salman says Wood's essential "Britishness" is entirely in keeping with Liberty's spirit,
Liberty has in the past worked with the art of master painters such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris to create the fabric prints, to be used in their fine designs. So you could imagine (as Tamara Salman shared) there were a few raised eyebrows when she took Ronnie's "I Feel Like Painting" to be viewed by her colleagues. "Everyone said, 'Whoa that's pretty wacky'," she said, but added: "It really connected with Liberty's free-spirited heritage - and it was so poignant."
In recent weeks Ronnie Wood's designs have walked down the runways in both London and Paris' Fashion Weeks and are rumored to be now finding their way to the fashion capitals of the United States.
