To find inspiration we don’t look at a single thing. We create a theme from an image – autumn leaves, light effects, fabric patterns or even the weather. As the academics and professionals in the industry like to call it a “mood board”.
The function of this would be to help you to grow your idea from something solid – where you can see your inspiration in something solid. I like to rip into magazines. Find what inspires me from the mix. Wether it’s clean, chaotic and geometric to bright pink or pastel. It’s all there.
So to make the mood board:
- Find a theme
- Prepare a collage
- Develop your idea
- Make sure that it ties into your “mood”
- It has a common theme and you can find it easily – make it obvious.
You can do this with magazines, photos, cuts or sketches on paper or through digital via photoshop, or other programs available.
I love finding online the little help videos on how-to of the fashion industry. I love Zoe Hong’s youtube channel. She is very precise and clear on what she wants and how to go about it. She is a treasure. So I’m sharing it with you guys.
