Art & Fashion Collide

Instead of focusing on runway trends for her seventh Fall Fashion Preview, Fashion Editor Jess James chose work from the “State of the Art/art of the state” exhibit as inspiration. Hosted at the Cameron Art Museum and presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center, the event featured curated pieces from over 650 works of art, all from North Carolina artists.

With Photographers, Ethan Gaskill and Ben Minor, and the talented team at Beauty Bar Boutique, Jess styled 23 photo shoots with clothing and accessories from local boutiques and designers for her featured runway looks, spotlighting the art of fashion.
