This past weekend Allora collaborated with a very celebrated photographer and artist, Bobbi Bennett. As a collector of Bobbi’s artwork for years, Laura (my mom) decided it would be quite the marriage of fashion and art, and what a better landscape than Allora itself! Essentially, Allora & Art is a collaboration of fashion and photographic art. Both Bobbi and Laura find it most important to celebrate this long standing relationship. They like to remind people that fashion and photography have had a long and successful marriage. Through-out the eons, images portrayed from the renaissance artists to the work of Annie Lebowitz and Richard Avedon not only capture the popular culture of the times by depicting their subjects in their sartorial representations, but their images tend to transcend tastes, unifying their audience and reminding us of our heritage…perhaps inspiring uniqueness and originality – something both Bobbi and Laura strive to do every day with their clients. Although Bobbi’s work is wide themed, from landscapes to the physical form, her unique ability to curate photographic function and technicality with beauty, form and feeling aligns itself poetically with fashion.
