Do you ever make mood boards? I remember back when I was in fashion school our projects were always accompanied by a mood board. I loved making them and I still do. I used to love finding vivid imagery in COLORS magazine, which highlights global themes from an unconventional perspective. Purple magazine was full of edgy avant-fashion and wild poetry and content. It’s funny, I used to buy so many art, fashion & photography books and magazines- I guess I factored them into my monthly allowance as necessities but these days I seldom purchase a $45 magazine… Luckily today you can find so many images online, from past & present, to make a cohesive and meaningful mood board.
Right now I am really into monotone fabrics embellished with textures: like white cotton & lace, creme colored cotton eyelet over light silk, brocade and silk jacquard. W magazine has many gorgeous photographs of textures, and if you’re thirsty for camp AnOther magazine will quench.
