Top 100 Wearable Art Designers on Instagram

Wearable Art

For more than 5 years now, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is keeping an attentive eye out on the rising contemporary art movement that is wearable art.
We have had the pleasure of working with many incredible designers – for the magazine itself, our web blog, and we, of course, shared their work across our 900,000+ strong social media network. Wearable art is a fascinating medium, connecting many different techniques and styles, and opening new ways to traditional art, couture, jewelry, design, and installation art.

So we are thrilled to share with you a list of artists whose work is truly unique, elegant, avant-gardist, luxurious, fun and, always incredibly creative. They work with a wide variety of mediums from textiles, latex, feathers, metal, gold, silver, beads, paper, bones, plastic, pearls, precious stones, lace, resin, leather, fiberglass, wood, and more. Their creations range from small jewels, masks, headpieces, corsets to bigger than life costumes! These wearable artworks can be for fashion, but also to stand out as a community, to become a living artwork or to embrace your beautiful bizarre power.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means, and it is definitely not in any particular order!

It includes internationally acclaimed artists, whose work has been shown in prestigious catwalks and shops and worn by celebrities, as well as fascinating and brilliant emerging artists who deserve more attention. You may note that there are some designers who are conspicuously missing. This is because we have not included artists without an Instagram presence, because as you will see, all the artists mentioned below are linked to their Instagram accounts so you can quickly and easily follow them too. With there being options where users can now send instagram messages on computer, linking the artists’ Instagram accounts next to their name will allow people to check out their work, as well as potentially interacting with them online. We respect that some designers don’t want to have an Instagram presence, but we encourage those who are considering it to create themselves an account and to read up about nitreo and how that could help once their account is live. Of course, there are many more talented wearable art designers out there we haven’t found yet. You can even consider this Top 100 as a Part 1! So, if you are a wearable art designer, or know one that you feel should be included in our next list, please comment below. We are always in search of exciting new creatives!

• The Silver Thistles • I always love how Laura interprets my outfits, but this series is something special, as I could be on set and see the magic happen myself. Joining photographers and models for photoshoots is one of my most favourite parts of my job, as that is the moment when my vision finally comes to life. While I love seeing the finished pictures, it means so much more if I can be present and see everything unfold in front of my eyes. It kind of makes me feel like a child in front of the Christmas tree – experiencing that moment in itself feels magical and all the presents (or pictures in my case 😉) are beautiful memories of that moment.

"Fairy" fragment of sculpture. 2016 In order to make a fabulous forest character, we needed to make a truly unusual paper form for paper, for a headdress resembling a fabulous flower of a truly exotic plant. "Фея" Фрагмент скульптуры. 2016. Для того чтобы сделать сказочный персонаж лесным, нам потребовалось сделать из бумаги по-настоящему необычную бумажную форму для головного убора, напоминающего сказочный цветок по настоящему экзотического растения. #asyakozina #paperwig #paperatrist #papercut #fairytail #fairy #fashion #sculpture #paperartwork #paperart#paperdezign #papercrafting #paperartwork #artists_insta #artstudio #artistforhire #creativepreneur #artclass #artwork #artdaily #artform #characterdesign #sculptures #artfestival #artworkshops #arthelp #artistic_nation #artfollowers #papercutter #fineart

Now for something a little spiky. Our silk and Swarovski crop top/bra. Worn with our sculpted spike, wool skirt. This was one of those rare designs that came out of no where one day and just worked, no fighting with proportions, no "well how do I make that work?!" moments. . . .

@iamamurray born from a dream ✨💫imagined by— photographer @robwoodcoxphoto, assistant @fox_frazier, model & actress @iamamurray wearing a Michelle Hébert dress with beauty & body flower art by @stellartfiore_mua . Seeing this series today feels like the perfect conclusion to the year— a collaboration encompassing the talents of many artists ✨ looking at 2019 as being a year filled with a surplus of creativity and work amongst visionaries . But on another real note, hoping the new year sends less shipping struggles mine and Rob’s way— dhl + customs nearly thwarted this shoot through an extensive review process causing juuust a touch of mild panic in both @robwoodcoxphoto and myself

Our entire ‘Belonging to the Darkness’ series is currently 20% off with code HALLOWEEN20: thru tomorrow at midnight { 10/2 } EST US. Many other jewels of ours are also part of our Autumn Sale, follow the direct link in our profile: @bloodmilk to browse our offerings. These rings are important to me as the serve as a dual symbol for me. Firstly, I’ve been wearing mine for years as a reminder that I belong to myself, despite my melancholy, despite my anxiety, despite my mistakes and moments from my past that still make me cringe in remembrance, despite my grief, despite the heartbreaks I’ve weathered or caused, despite my vulnerability ….I still belong to myself and can work towards accepting these parts, knowing I can transform and expand. Secondly, I was married with the same ring I wore as a symbol of being married to myself. There is a doubling here for me, romance and a symbol of the struggle of self acceptance. Dual loves bound in one ring. #bloodmilk

“Living is easy with eyes closed Misunderstanding all you see It's getting hard to be someone But it all works out It doesn't matter much to me…” . ~ John Lennon . . . “State of Affairs” pendant with convertible earrings in fine and sterling silver with 14k gold accents and 24k gold applied using the keum-boo technique. It measures 4.25” from top to bottom and about 4” wide. The scale weights can be removed and worn as 3.5” long mismatched earrings. The weight on the right has a blue sapphire, red garnet with a tourmaline on top, surrounded by 14k gold and sterling silver balls. I will be listing this on Monday at 2pm EST, but if you’re interested in it and want more info, please send me an email. . . I have tons to say, but for now, I’m hoping my wearable statement speaks loudly enough. 🤷🏻‍♀️🖤 . . . #wearableart #johnlennon #skeleton #feministart #statementjewelry #metalsmith #instasmithy #artist #instaart #wearablesculpture #halo #gothic #garnetjewelry #sapphire #tourmaline #beautifulbizarre #riojeweler #handfabricatedjewelry #handmade #madeinnewyork #stonesparrow #stonesparrowdesign

#HAPPYNATIONALHATDAY #HUMANAFTERALL #MITOSIS @elysium_health Which side wins in the battle of Nature vs. Nurture? Many of the answers lie within the #Science of #twin studies, and their inverse, adoption studies. From obesity to IQ, researchers have been building data based on these powerful studies for decades to evaluate the age-old debate. Learn more on Endpoints at Most twin studies use an assumption of shared environment to discern the differences brought on by genetics between sets of identical (monozygotic) and fraternal (dizygotic) twins. By studying pairs of twins longitudinally, or observing their lives through physical and psychological tests for many years, or even entire lifetimes, scientists can use these similarities (parents, household, economic situation, and more) and differences (uneven factors like bullying, abuse, and generally altered life course) to discover the reasons why two people with exactly the same or somewhat similar genes can vary so wildly. Tag a twin you know in the comments to let them know they're contributing to important research. #IdenticalTwins: @shallowself & @larenadanielle of @mothermarymusic 📷: @erick.png #Photographer #CreativeDirector #ErickFletes #ManhattanMadhatter #HEIDILEE #SilverMirror #ENDLESSECHOHAT #ENDLESSECHO ©2014 Heidi Lee #Models #MotherMaryMusic . . . . . . . . . #elysiumhealth #endpoints #editorial #twins #twinsisters #twinsofinstagram #genetics #science #wellness #scicomm #research #design #portraitphotography #portrait #naturevsnurture
