The fusion of art, fashion and textiles has a long history. A glimpse at a mid-century collaboration is on exhibit at Whitford Fine Art in a show of scarves with drawings from the collection of Ascher Squares. In 1947, Ascher Textiles commissioned several artists of the period to draw and design for scarves. The results were delightful, colorful and dynamic designs to wrap around shoulders and necks.
I rarely leave the house without a scarf, an essential decoration and a practical accessory and have a collection of scarves that resemble a rainbow, but these are special, they are wearable art.
