Fashion is the most powerful art there is. Its movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be.
Architecture and fashion have a lot in common, both, designer and architect use geometry to generate forms, they create structure, design lines and shapes.
Fashion can often be ephemeral or timeless, and uses soft fluid materials; whereas architecture is considered monumental and permanent, and uses strong rigid materials. Regardless of differences in size, scale and materials, the point of origin for both fashion design and architecture is the human body. Both practices protect and shelter us, while providing a means to express our identities whether personal, political, religious or cultural.
As Coco Chanel said: “Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportion.”
