Abstract

Architecture and clothing design are among the extensively employed arts in everyday human life. Their common features and properties must be thoroughly outlined to study their potential progress to achieve the same goal. These common features can be a mutual source of an inspiration and a great significance. Architecture is a very broad field and is deemed to predate clothing design. One of the aesthetically significant architectures is historical buildings within the kingdom of which mosques have garnered particular attention in Islamic aesthetics. The required information on this case study is, the Imam Mosque of the city of Isfahan (located on the south side of Naghsh Jahan Square), was collected from library archived, i.e., through books and articles and electronic sources. After gathering information and obtaining the common features of these two areas, this case study clothing design using conceptual motifs by Ms. Mohajeri, a restorer of historical monuments, is explored. The design of the target garment is inspired by the entrance of the Imam Mosque in the city of Isfahan. The forms, patterns, and colors used in the mosque entrance have also been recreated in this dress. The result from examining the notion, design, and creation process of this work indicates the feasibility of the interaction of the two areas.
