An article in the New York Times magazine headlined Twenty Designers on the Art That Inspires Them, featured our very own Mr. John Germain. As the feature piece states, “Art and fashion are famously symbiotic — but a new auction shows just how much designers have drawn influences from works of art. For a new sale on the site Paddle8, 20 American designers — including Michael Kors, Thom Browne, Francisco Costa and Diane von Furstenberg — have each picked one piece of art that has influenced their work …” As seen in the screen capture above, no less a figure than Diane von Furstenberg has drawn upon Mr. Germain’s work for her own artistic inspiration.
DASH, through the notable and noted work of its many gifted educators, once again shines in the national spotlight keeping company with such world class artists and designers as Kors, von Furstenburg and many others of this stature. We are proud that Mr. Germain is counted among the members of this distinguished group.
