This thesis first researches and studies modern Japanese architectural style and Japanese aesthetic in design, in addition to the evaluation of the Japanese influence on Fashion Design. It will reveal how modern architecture in Japan has inspired me, and will ultimately provide a complete understanding of how simple, understated, well-constructed clothing, can be a major important dimension for fashion heading into the next decade. The aesthetic of Japanese architects has enormously influenced extraordinary buildings, such as the Bank of China in Hong Kong and the glass pyramid in front of the Louvre in Paris (both designed by I.M.Pei). The purity and harmony of these architectural edifices has decidedly influenced the world on simplicity and quality; this thesis will clearly reveal how fashion itself can also be pure and simple, but at the same time, directional and influential.
