Fashion collection concept ideas
Fashion collection concept ideas:
With the next 2 videos I will continue with the plant series. The inspiration can come from anywhere but some of you wrote me asking for a fashion collection inspired by plants, so, here we are:)
You were asking me how long I spend after doing my research. In fact, these drawings I made were not something I worked and over-worked. I just see the inspirational image, i decompose it instantly into parts
and start drawing.
That’s why you see a lot of lines at the beginning of my videos. I try to capture the essence of the plant or flower I see in the moment I see it.I don’t make any other sketches before shooting my videos. I do my research previously and I gather all the images in a folder. Then I start observing each of them, thinking if one plant or another will inspire me more.The nicest one will be the winner and I will just start sketching after it.
My first sketches, you will see, are very close the the real model or shape of the flower. Then, the dresses will be more and more abstract until one can not guess from one glimpse the source of inspiration.This happens when you want to refine something and go deep and deeper into the creative process.
When drawing I don’t think of a color. I just start flowing and sinking into the theme I choose. After that, I put color to see what happens. Sometimes I don’t like the color combination but i will keep the design of the outfit and re-color it.I don’t think if the outfit can be worn or not. I will see that later. There is plenty of time to transform your outfit into a wearable one. Now it is the time to play.
Also, when sketching, do not think of a certain part of your costume. Do not think or try to create a blouse or a dress. Let your pencil dance on the surface of the paper and the shape will come. It is always better to do this than imposing yourself to think of how can you transform a plant into a pullover or a skirt.
And, as I previously said, try to use the same images I did to create a small collection. Then send it to me and I will include your drawings in my future video and we will discuss together the feed-back. This will help you learn faster. Now sit back and enjoy my video, thinking in the meantime how to explore different things of the same images in order to create a new collection inspire by plants.
