Main Article Content

Saliha Agac


The history of fashion has shown that art and fashion are influenced by each other. Cooperation between the two disciplines is quite extensive. In this work, first, the installation artist Yayoi Kusama’s installations and the clothes that she prepared for these installations are examined. Then, the 2012 collection prepared with the cooperation of Yayoi Kusama-Louis Vuitton was examined and visual content analysis forms were created. As a result of the findings, a capsule collection was prepared in honour of Yayoi Kusama and photographed by establishing the figure–ground relationship as in the fashion photographs of the Yayoi Kusama-Louis Vuitton collection.

Keywords: Yayoi Kusama, Louis Vuitton, fashion design, art, capsule collection.
