The convergence between architecture and fashion has slowly started to creep into my life. Architecture in and of itself is an art-form and by combining the two, makes for an interesting interpretation of your own style. Coco Chanel said that ‘fashion is architecture’ and this couldn’t ring more true because whether we love fashion or we don’t, everyday we are constructing pieces of clothing that to an extent, represent us as human beings. However, in my case, I have made a conscious decision to reflect different realms of my being by giving my readers something visual to look at whilst unconsciously identifying with me as a human being. In other words, you may have noticed that I tend to stray away from one specific style but that’s just me, I change my mind all the time and I would like that to be reflective of someone that is constantly evolving.
About this Look:
I decided to keep it simple and classic by wearing an all-black ensemble. I recently picked up this black raw-cut sleeveless jacket and black pleather leggings from River Island so I just had to wear it. When I buy items, I always make sure that I already have an outfit in mind and when buying black items, its not difficult to pull together multiple outfits by recycling the same items. Paired with gold accessories, I kept it chic and classy.
About this location:
I fell in-love with this Location because of all it represents – the hustle and bustle of city life and a gentle reminder that the mind is the conquerer of all and I can truly achieve all I set out for myself. Like I said in previous posts, it’s always important to dress ‘location appropriate’ and stick to the theme of location. For example, I wasn’t about to wear an all-black outfit with a forest background but rather bright and vibrant colours. It’s all about creating an aesthetic that is believable and authentic.
