Graffiti is the name for street art which is quite much present in fashion industry these days. But it is usually regarded as provocative and even illegal sometimes in artistic form. It is because designers are always presenting new and unexpected art which results in a severe reaction. Those people that were mocked due to their graffiti style in the beginning are now welcomed from Moschino’s graffiti-tagged gowns to recent collaboration of Gucci with GucciGhost.

This collaboration is not new as Marc Jacobs-approved collaboration got the profit of $300 million after Stephen Sprouse disfigure Vuitton bags in 2001. It was evident for designers that youth market can be achieved with mixture of low and high culture.

But these relations don’t remain best always. The brands of Moschino and Roberto Cavalli entered a lawsuit with claims of their street art designs been taken without permission by the other brand which later resulted in eradication of profit for both. The labels who perform correctly together from beginning to end performs well. Following are the artists that went from street to the studio successfully.


GucciGhost was the result of teenage obsession with Gucci that stemmed from Halloween costumes by Gucci. But the artist Trevor Andrew was aware that actual Gucci collection is not his job. He was fortunate that new creative director Alessandro Michele accepted his cartoon Gussi ghost symbol and invited him for fall 2016 collection. Just recently, GucciGhost’s effort of metallic bomber jacket and a was released saturated gold “REAL” is released.
