Whites, curves and maximalism

Wearable Architecture or Fashionable Buildings.

Coco Chanel famously said that “fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportion”. Today more than ever the words of the iconic designer revive in the common practices fashion and architecture share. Entire haute couture collections draw inspiration from architectural themes and turn them into fabric. Patterns, shapes, forms and colors turn the runway into ‘wearable architecture’. On the other hand, traditional fashion techniques such as pleats are applied by architects in volume, surface or style and lead to ‘fashionable buildings’.
