From the Paper:

"An age-old argument among scholars has been whether art influences society, or whether art is a reflection of the society that produced it. When one examines art as an expression of self, it is difficult to view it as anything other than an expression of society. Popular designers in architecture and fashion design works that achieve public acceptance. Therefore, it stands to reason that trends in architectural design and fashion design are a reflection of the society that surrounds them. This research will explore the link between fashion design and architectural design with an emphasis on the use of fabric and building materials as the medium. "
