Fashion and art have been crossing paths, holding hands and looking shyly longingly at each other across the room like teenagers since culture began. It’s about time we celebrated this mutual and longstanding relationship with some ground-breaking collaborations. Nine London fashion designers have been paired up with nine London artists and commissioned to create a series of work as part of the London 2012 Festival for ‘Fashion + Art Collusion’ at the V&A Museum (July 6-29). With designers such as Paul Smith, Jonathan Saunders, Mary Katrantzou and Mark Titchner, Gavin Turk and Jeremy Deller, we had to have it as our pick of the Hot List this week. Carly-Ann Clements
