Karis Harvey explores the relationship between fashion and architecture within her body of work ‘Brutal’ specifically looking into brutalist buildings located in the city of London. Fashion and architecture are two industries that may seem completely different. Karis explores the similarities between the two; both provide a shelter for people in different social dimensions. Both industries consider material construction, techniques, overall aesthetic, and function and build a relationship with unique conceptual design. Karis focused this piece of work around brutalist architecture in London inspired by the concrete block aesthetic as they complement the futuristic, sculptural garments that feature in these photographs. These buildings are identifiable to London, which is another element that Karis aims to portray within these images.
