Fashion itself is an art. And, for decades, the leading minds in art and fashion have worked together, building breathtaking storefronts, installing intricate runway sets and photographing gorgeous ad campaigns. On a more seldom basis, they partner up to design actual clothing. But when they do, the results tend to be unforgettable.

One of the earliest partnerships between artist and designer came in the 1930s when painter Salvador Dali and designer Elsa Schiaparelli worked together on garments such as the Dinner Dress with Painted Lobster and the Shoe Hat. Ever since, art and fashion have followed that blueprint and found creative ways to collaborate.
