    At Aesthetic Movement we’ve decided to pull together and highlight our one-of-a-kind community of resourceful, brave, and insightful retailers and brands, as well as our own hardworking team. We want to focus on what we can do; how we keep on keepin’ on, and what we’re all doing in the face of our biggest-ever challenge.   Oscar Wilde prefaces his novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, with a reflection on art, the artist, and the utility of both. After careful scrutiny, he concludes: “All art is quite useless” (Wilde 4). In this one sentence, Wilde encapsulates the complete principles of the Aesthetic Movement popular in Victorian England.
