11 Examples of Art and Architecture in Fashion

The vision, the choice of materials, as well as the form, functionality, and space are just some components of architecture, but these can also be applied to fashion and art in general. Architecture and art bleed into fashion and vice versa. All utilize a play of light and shadow creating an ambience. All are created under the laws of constraint and restraint.

These are some examples of how art, architecture and fashion are interrelated. Interpretations and views are my own.
