How Did Pop Art Influence Fashion?

Pop art has influenced fashion through the use of various art forms, including fashion illustration, photography and the utilization of prints and designs taken from modern art and popular culture. Some artists that have employed pop art in fashion include Jeremy Scott, Keith Haring, Antonio Lopez, Patricia Field and Andy Warhol.

Pop art originated in the 1950s and 1960s as a movement that challenged traditional fine art practices by introducing mass cultural themes from comics, movies, advertisements and news. An example of pop art is Andy Warhol's depiction of Campbell's Soup cans and celebrity icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. Warhol also illustrated political icons like Chairman Mao and First Lady Jackie Kennedy. Artists and fashion designers have used these themes to design clothing pieces. An example is Jeremy Scott's Simpson's knits.
