DIY Fashion: The Splatter-Paint Trend
This spring, we're seeing artisans and designers collide with splatter-paint fashions that range from shoes to apparel and accessories. So, in this edition of R29 DIY, I'm channeling my inner Jackson Pollock and paying homage to the late and great Alexander McQueen, and other designers such as Tory Burch and Proenza Schouler who recently showed collections during Fashion Week that painted smiles on our faces.
Reach into your closet to breathe some colorful new life into existing items with vibrant paint shades that scream I'm a Rebel (and a cool one!). Keep in mind, with this project, all imperfections are, in fact, perfect. The more random your strokes and splatters, the better!
