Pleats, folds and curves

Fashion, design and architecture. Their relation is more obvious than ever.

FormFollowsFashion has repeatedly explored the relation of these three sectors. What they definitely share is style. Scale and use of their end products may differ, however aesthetics is their common characteristic. Their obviously correlated results are due to techniques they do share in designing and manufacturing, especially nowadays with the technology evolution.  Although pleats, folds and curves may be some of the most usual techniques we have explored in FormFollowsFashion, they still deliver exceptional examples.
