So here is step one: Documentation.
First of all, I would want to give you a link that I find very useful when it comes to find your inspiration – and I will attach below my print screens from this site. When searching for a starting point for your new fashion collection it is very important to do your documentation.
This means all you have to do is to study as much as you can: to have a visual and textual documentation. For this I use the followings:
2. I search on Google – as text and image.
3. I read as many books as I can to know more about the topic I want to know ( let’s say the Prehistoric art)
4. I go to museums or libraries to find out more about my theme.
After that, I start doing photos or sketches – this is my documentation. Once the info gathered, I post them all over, around me: in my workshop, on the walls, in a special folder on my computer or on my Facebook.
See below some examples of how a workshop should look like in order to sink into an inspiring atmosphere that will later lead you to great fashion ideas.
When searching for inspiration to create a new fashion collection, first of all you can study the history of art, from its origins until now.
Here you can find the print screens I made with the history of art in chronological order.
