ART AND COMMERCE: Wolfgang Joop shows his Wunderkind collection on a Paris runway, but used Berlin Fashion Week as the occasion to mount “The Genesis of a Dress,” an exhibition Thursday night at Wunderkind’s boutique in Gendarmenmarkt that gave an illustrated history of the fall/winter collection. There were collages incorporating an Eames chair and a sculpture by Joseph Beuys, along with muslins, some with corrective marking in hot pink, standing next to finished garments. Styles for next season include color-blocked coats and chiffon dresses inspired by Russian Suprematist artist Kazimir Malevich, and  subtle graphic prints of deer, leopards and llamas derived from the photographs of Gregor Törzs, whose works hung on the store’s walls. Noted Joop: “These days, fashion is like a moving installation. And art is now like a fashion show. ”
