art&design

I feel this question has been lingering around for a while. The difference between art and design, and then I guess the difference between fashion design and another sector of design such as interior and spatial. I don’t ever think this question will be answered, and nor do I really want it to. There is something about this concept that allows personal opinion to be formed. The below quote by Wouter Stokkel somewhat helps and yields a discovery into the difference between the fields. There’s something special and almost witty about the way he simply categorises these forms of art and design. Cheers, quotes on design

“It’s art if it can’t be explained. It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation. It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation.”

— WOUTER STOKKEL
