Inspiration seems endless when it comes to the fashion industry, but how about the influence of architecture?

MyModernMet has taken Pierre Balmain's famous quote ‘Dress making is the architecture of movement’ to heart, with an interesting article on the subject.

Comparing a surprising variety of buildings with catwalk looks, there's a clear correlation between architectural styles and the latest fashions.

These include a dress from the Paco Rabanne Fall 2013 which seems to reference the Guggenheim Museum, the delicate stylings of Dior and Esterhazy Palace's interiors, and the intricate geometrics of Jean Paul Gaultier's pieces.

The article also explores how strong silhouettes and bold lines make iconic buildings and high-end clothes so visually striking.
