Fashion Icons Art Collectors

Fashion is an art in itself. A mix of the right colors and contours can make a person stick out in the crowd. And it comes as no surprise that many of the world’s top fashion icons also appreciate art.

These designers and fashionistas care about the art on their walls just like they care about the art on their bodies.

Which famous names in the art world are these designers targeting?
