    I scan and look through as much visuals as I can, as many fashion books, magazines (vogue), websites, art and crafts, historical fashion books until something catches my eye and inspires me. I sketch ideas, print out visuals and stick them up. I keep doing this and combine all the different details together to create something that I find new and so fun to make. I love it!

    I get my inspiration from life…just walking around and seeing what other people are wearing and how I can change their outfit to fit me and what I like, then i look on Burdastyle or other wibsites with free patterns to see if i can actually make my idea into a piece of clothing!

    Before I was born my mother was having an enormous shelf that contains burda magazines, and almost all my childhood clothing were made from burda patterns, it inspired me a lot and I started to do my own styles and designs using both the burda magazines and the burdastyle website as well. The last project I did last week in December was the Harem pant, in which burda website was having a great impact to accomplish this nice piece of fashion.

    I subscribe to Hautelook.com and Ruelala.com and Guilt Groupe which sell discounted designer clothes. I get many ideas from “window shopping” on those sites. I also get inspired by what others post on Burdastyle and patternreview.com.

    Friends have always been inspiring…that’s typically why they became friends in the first place. But bloggers who share so much of their creative lives become somewhere between friends and acquaintances, and inspire me by sharing their inner spark.

    Wearing something you’ve created that makes you feel like you’re the only one in the room is the only inspiration I’ll ever need. Being a girl is awesome, thanks to BurdaStyle!

    my main inspiration is from bloggers. they find all the good stuff and modify it and make it more simple for me. they are great at reverse engineering things when no pattern can be found. wists is a good place too.

    Inspiration comes from accepting what’s different being tolerant and giving each new thing a chance. Being tolerant really makes you accept new issues which can help you to broaden your point of view maybe change the way with whom you face your life and that’s inspiration in fact . Being limited to some ideas is a lost of your own hidden skills which hasn’t already been used.

    I look at Burdastyle alot for inspiration – it’s so interesting to me to see how other users take the patterns and interpret them. I also read several fashion magazines, and am generally an observant person – I am more interested in the people who catch my eye rather than the dominant trends.

    I love to look at trend watching sites such as fashionising.com and stylecaster.com because they are really good at breaking down what trends are spotted both on the runway as well as street style trends. My favorite place of all to get ideas is from analyzing the runway shows myself on nymag.com, where I like to keep tabs on my favorite designers over the seasons and figure out how I can adapt my favorite pieces into my own style.

    My inspiration come from diverse mags (Glamour, Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue, Korean & Japanese fashion mags & Burda Mode) & from old pitures of my granny, my mom or sometimes from pictures of a random person. I also love get ispired by BurdaStyle and other web site like style.com and love to browse in my collage which I collected over several years.

    I like to look in old magazines. My favourite was ‘Anna’, now sadly discontinued here in the UK. I find that the garments made from these older patterns generally fit better and can often be adapted to a more modern look. Burda magazine is, of course, a source of inspiration as well. I occassionally buy other magazines when I see something interesting in them but I do find that they contain a lot that does not interest me at all. Monica Albinson

    I find inspiration from contacting other people discovering their different skills and how they use it to enrich their personalities .Inspiration comes also from other’s experiences, from enlarging my horizons through discovering other civilisations . Studying History presents also a source of inspiration because this makes me understand Humanity in all situations and by consequent understand myself and discover my hidden capacities
