Off Book | Fashion of Artists | PBS Arts

Duration: 06:23

Although not every artist is as attentive to fashion as Kanye West, style does make its way into their lives. Sometimes driven by practical purpose, other times by personal expression or as part of performance, fashion plays a role in the aesthetic landscape of many artists. In this episode, we talk with a diverse array of creators about the relationship of style and fashion to their lives and work. Featured artists include the songwriter Yuna from Fader Label, street artist WK Interact, skateboard deck and apparel designers 5boro, painter and toy designer Tara McPherson, and artist Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner.
