Photographer Erik Madigan Heck has paired once again with The Cut to create an absolutely beautiful, virtual spread that proves the symbiotic nature of fashion and art.

This isn’t a typical take on Spring 2014 clothing. The craftsmanship, detail, pattern and design are the focus, rather than a tangible “outfit” styled on a person. “By framing a series of richly decorated silhouettes from the back,” writes The Cut, “Heck counters the common inclination to pass instant, face-value judgement on a designer’s proposition.”

In Heck’s world, the model is not the focus. But it’s not about the labels, either. The clothing — the art — is the focus.
