Loving other Labels…

Today I have been thinking about my top 10 garments-the design process has officially started!

So, as a tip, Ask yourself; What would I wear? then ask again; Why would someone else buy it?…

This is just two of a lot of questions that you will need to ask yourself as you start designing. Probably a few times while crunched over sketchpads and magazine clippings …Some people refers this to the “Design Process”. It’s healthy to contemplate collections, change and scrap or add things to each piece and looks. As you venture into your own ‘bubble’ making a collection you will also appreciate the magic of “editing”. Editing meaning giving your garment a second glanze to see if there is anything that doesn’t need to be there or if something needs to be added, it could be a simple zip changed to a slightly chunkier model giving the garment a raw edge? The art of editing is sometimes best done by others as they’ll inspect it with a new pair of eyes. I have spent all day browsing through Elle longing to get started with a new fresh collection and love to be inspired and get that “must have” feeling, nothing beats it! I then asked myself, “What would I buy and would I design something like that?” As for the picture below, Isabel Marants quilted jacket the answer is YES. There is nothing wrong with feeling passionate about a different garment, the important thing is to feel passionate about YOUR garment, the one your working on and imagine that someone else will feel that too…

 

Do you have any muses or labels that you adore?….my label of admiration is Isabel Marant!
