Ariel Adkins of Artfully Awear 

We are always inspired by our talented friend Ariel Adkins AKA @artfullyawear, and her dedication to dressing like a masterpiece. 


Ariel hand-paints garments inspired by original artwork of all genres, mediums and eras, and from artists around the globe. Claiming Oscar Wilde’s quote as her mantra – “One should either be a work of Art, or wear a work of Art” – Ariel uses Artfully Awear to express her artistic obsession from head to shoes. 


With autumn in full swing and Halloween just around the corner, we found it fitting to share Ariel's outfit tribute to Yayoi Kusama's iconic 'Pumpkin' (pictured above). Of course, we couldn't stop there, so we're also sharing a smattering of favourites from Ariel's incredible collection.

Ariel's en-pointe outfit mimicks the forms of glass artist Dale Chihuly's colourful sculpture. 



Ariel is easily one of our favourite people to follow on Instagram, we're always excited to see what she will come up with next! We know you'll love following her too - find her @artfullyawear
