Reading #3; The Fashion of Architecture

I found the reading interesting, because I never thought of how an architectural building could be an inspiration to designers. Just like we are influence by others on what we wear, designers are also influence by abstract and architecture buildings and vice versa. In the reading they mention how architects use the environment to change the relationship of each other and ourselves, by the use of materials, color. Now that I think about what I read we do see to day shirts with famous building such as the black and white image of Eifel tower in Paris to the Golden Gate Bridge  in San Francisco printed on shirts. Not only are designers. Not only are designers inspired by architect but they are also inspired by different time period from the nineteenth- century to the avant-garde period. Designers are not only creating their own designs but they are using historical inspirations in creating the fashion for todays environment.
