P A R A L L E L S P T . O N E

There are many theories as to how ideas are born.
One of my favourites suggests that there are infinite numbers of idea floating about in the atmosphere and people just reach up and grab them at specific times. Occasionally two or more people may grab a hold of the same idea at the same time, completely by chance, but end up producing things that are somehow related.
However, a similar idea may be expressed in different mediums, as different objects, for different uses, which is something that has always fascinated me.
This is the first of many posts which i hope to create that explores P A R A L L E L S
specifically between Architecture and Fashion, in form, texture, finish, material and concept. I personally have found myself inspired by clothing details in designs for architectural works, and one of my most memorable lectures was on the very same subject.
