I’ve discovered Oscar de la Renta a bit late in the game, I suppose. Now that I know it’s so very up-my-alley, I’ll be watching more videos in the weeks to come. Then I’ll pick my faves and put them on Pinterest and here on my blog, if you guys enjoy this. Does that sound fun to anybody besides this fashion nerd???
Psst. Want to hear a secret? My new, 4-volume look book is actually my high school yearbooks. I pasted and taped my fashion tears in, very casually (torn edges were fine, we’re going for mood here, not perfection).. Tears are the pages you always tear out of magazines or catalogs (or dog ear–c’mon, you know you do it, Creative Types!).
One homework assignment we were given early on in the program was to organize different types of tears. This was a huge step in the right direction, and now I have not only a document of my high school fashion influences and current influences, but also a portable portfolio of inspiration to show clients so we can identify a feeling or a particular look we want.
You mean my homework is to organize all my favorite pieces of visual inspiration? Sweet! Two entire weekends of, essentially, Scrapbooking: The Fashion Designer’s Edition.
