Formatted abstract
This thesis attempts to investigate the contemporary relationship between architecture and fashion, where fashion takes on the participatory role in the discipline of architecture. Although, the relationship between architecture and fashion was acknowledged more than a century ago, the association between them has seldom been investigated by historians, designers and practising architects.

The research begins by examining the ideas, design philosophies, techniques and materials used by architects such as Le Corbusier, Adolf Loos, Tadao Ando, Jun Aoki, Renzo Piano, Rem Koolhaas and Herzog & de Meuron. Introducing the thoughts of theorists and sociologists; like Walter Benjamin, Pierre Bourdieu, Charles Jencks, describing the role of architecture in the formation of fashion identities, as well as focusing on fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Prada through their collaborative work with architects.
