How Zaha Hadid was of Major Influence on Fashion

She may be best known for her architectural designs. Nonetheless, Hadid had a major impact on the fashion industry not only through the Chanel famous Mobile Art Pavilion she designed, or Atelier Swarovski’s installations she created to commemorate its 20th anniversary but also through jewelry and fashion pieces.

Through her collaborations with Danish label Georg Jensen, Swiss brand Caspita and Lebanese Aziz and Walid Mouzannar, Hadid proved herself to be polyvalent and interdisciplinary, getting her inspiration to conceive jewelry from architecture and sculpture. She also collaborated with Lacoste, United Nude and Melissa Shoes to create some “futuristic” shoe designs. This is just a short list of Hadid’s contribution and vision to the fashion world.

It doesn’t seem surprising to know this side of her when we hear her confess to Vogue: “Architecture is how the person places herself in the space. Fashion is how you place the object on the person”.
