Architecture Influences in Fashion 

Contributed By in Art & Design

Coco Chanel famously said that “fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” As with most things the iconic designer said or did, it wasn’t long before the world followed her lead.

Classic designers like Versace, Balmain and Cardin all studied architecture before switching to fashion, while legendary architects like Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry have taken time off from designing buildings to work on jewelry, shoes and bags.

There’s a strong interplay between the design elements involved in both architecture and fashion, so it’s not surprising that so many creatives have tried their hand at both. Here’s our pick of the top ten times architecture inspired fashion.
