AN initiative fusing art and style which will see contemporary pop-art fashion married expertly with urban art has been launched in the window of Brown Thomas Limerick.

To mark this creative campaign, Brown Thomas Limerick has collaborated with Draw Out on the Art is On project.

The collaboration will see creations from a variety of artists involved in the Urban Art Initiative add their signature flair to the iconic shop windows in support of Limerick and its reign as City of Culture.

The Art is On initiative celebrates the art pop trend that has taken the catwalks of the world by storm this season.

Fashion designers have given their collections a pop-art spin with bold paint and brushstroke prints as well as spray-can designs and graffiti motifs. World-renowned fashion brands including Prada, Céline and Chanel champion this trend in their latest spring/summer collections and are one of the many inspirations for the window design in Brown Thomas Limerick.
