Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportions. Coco Chanel.

To play with proportions plays with our sense of ease. Volume can equally create space for visibility or invisibility. Cocooning can feel comforting or claustrophobic.

The relationship between fashion and architecture exists because of the centrality of people to the creative purpose. Both practices negotiate the space in which we live, whether it is the larger space in which we exist or the smaller one that we wear. Both deal with creative and commercial constraints. And both, at their most successful, achieve space for us to revel in our humanity, in all our variety and splendour.
